How would I go about removing this?

It's literally stuck in there. There's not enough sticking out to grip with anything. I'm getting really frustrated.

A set of screw extractors would probably do the trick - reverse, bite-threaded or the square variety, either type would probably get a bite in there, and let you back that out.

Two Options:

1. Grenade - Potential collateral damage but will work.
2. Go to hardware/Tool store and get a easy out.

Re: How would I go about removing this?

I got it out! Thanks for the tips. Screw extractors didn't do the trick, but they helped. I had to drill the stud with a 1/8" drill bit before I could get a grip with the screw extractors. Once I got that in, it wasn't going anywhere after a certain point. I finally (and by accident!) pulled out the whole stud, with the stud holder and all, out of the guitar. I used a dremel to cut slits in the side of the stud so that I could try unscrewing it with a screw driver. I tried this when the stud was still in the guitar, but couldn't get close enough without damaging the finish on my guitar. I ended up using a knife to unscrew it. The guitar has a few battle scars, unfortunately. Though nothing serious.

Whew. That thing was seriously not going to go easy.
