Thanks everyone for the advice. I figure at this point, either larger bushings (didn't know they come in different sizes) but apparently they do. Or fill and re-drill. Which in that case is not that much of a big deal. I've had to make furniture repairs by filling and re-drilling. However, thanks again for the advice y'all. Bear
A brief introduction, I am a skilled furniture builder and a musician of many years, but first time guitar builder. I received a guitar kit via the internet to try my first build. Its an SG kit. When I was test fitting all the pieces, the bridge and tail piece anchors fit loosely in their pre-drilled holes. I can install them and remove them freely. Now I'm pretty sure they should not be that loose. So, question being, what can I do to fix this problem? I am assuming as a craftsman I can, 1. Fill the holes with dowel material and re-drill the holes. 2. Epoxy the anchors in their hole. 3. Exchange the guitar body for another one from the manufacturer/seller. Thanks y'all
