It seems that the screw holding in the strap on the side of my JPM has worn away teh wood and slips out, any idea how i can fix this? I don't really want to fuck around with it too much, and it is old so yeah, thanks for any help!

fill the hole and re-screw it in.
Use wood filler. (let it dry first)
I woul list you a couple brands but i don't think you could get them where you are.

A simpler, less messy way to repair this is to place half a hardwood cocktail stick (or matches will suffice) into the screw hole ensuring none is protruding. As you screw the screw back into place, it'll bite into the cocktail stick/match push outwards and firmly hold the screw in place! I did this years ago and have never had to redo it!

yep what bill said!

i used a matchstick, cut it up into lil pieces, put it some in the hole, add some glue.... - done that 3 times, then i screwed a bigger screw i the hole, now it works fine :)

Now, do you see how music and technical problems bring us all closer together? I love this.
