Screw Posts- A.K.A. Bushings

Other than on the knife-edge bridge contact...Why are they're no screw post everywhere else on the guitar. I think that that would be a great idea for every guitar. You would have to worry a lot about the strap holes stripping, and the cavity controls stripping...
Why has nobody done anything like this?
Is there some company that does this as an aftermarket thing?
I think another word for them is bushings too...

I agree

I agree. I think it all boils down to $ and keeping prices competetive in the market. I once installed these bushings in an old Kramer Focus 1000. I installed them for all rear cavity plate screws and in the pickup routes to connect the pickup directly to the body. I was unhappy with the final product. Now I do not mess with the screw holes. Here is a tip on how to fix stripped screw holes: coat a round toothpick with wood glue. Insert into the stripped screw hole as deep as it will go. Break off toothpick flush with the body. Let dry and redrill. Works great.
