Maybe. My local tech looked at it said that the bridge had been to "high" which I highly doubt but said it had meant less surface area of the screw was in the wood. This meant the strings where forcing it forwards hence colliding with the paint. The only way to get it properly fixed is to dowel the holes but this will involve drilling. Hence I am selling the guitar as a project. Fortunately the person who seemingly wants to buy the body wants it as a painting project so these holes once filled will be un noticeable.
