Thumb strap screws on CC Jack

Recommended Posts

I've spent the last month on my new Jack, which I have very much enjoyed. I think I've found an instrument that feels like "home" in a unique way.


I'm wondering about the thumb strap screws, as pictured. Two of the screws on one side appear to be completely loose -- whether stripped or broken at the head I don't know. It looks like a similar situation is developing on the other side of the instrument.


My worry is that the thumb strap will break off the side of the instrument when the third screw gives up. Is there some larger piece of hardware that I can't see that is holding the strap on? What do those little screws do exactly? How worried should I be about this? I'm hoping to trade this instrument up for a Morse in the next few months.
