Screw broken off banjo in ion

My friend decided to mess with his ion and ended up breaking the screw on the banjo. Now he has a broken banjo, and half a screw stuck in his gun. What can he do to get it out? Any suggestions would be helpful.

If there is enough of the screw sticking out... take a hack saw or a dremil tool, and cut a straight line through the screw. Then use a flat head screw driver in the slot you just cut to remove the banjo.

Let us know if you were able to fix it.

That is an awesome idea... But it won't work here, I left out some details.

My friend is just going to order a new banjo so the main problem is with the screw piece stuck in the frame of the gun. It is about a 1/4 inch deep so I cant grab it with pliers or saw into it. We are really struggling to get it out. I believe the screw is hollow so maybe we can jam something in there and try to unscrew it? Thanks for any suggestions.
