I always use toothpicks or dowel. I don't understand why he says it takes a long time. I stick in a few toothpicks, cut them with a knife, put in the screw.

Glue takes 2 - 4 hours to cure. His method requires no curing

For little screws with no real load (pickguards) a pencil shaving works. Get a big solid curl going from a pencil, or a wooden dowel, trim it and glue that in pointy end first. Let the glue set a bit then put the screw back The screw self centers when put in. its practically invisible after it’s dried up. Old antique trick.
For neck screws, put a dowel plug in! Those screws are holding a few hundred pounds of load when tightened right.
