Pickups can move o.o

Recommended Posts

You can relax; it's perfectly normal! [thumbup]

 

The pickups 'balance' on 2 height screws that ensure they will work in just about any guitar with standard humbuckers, so they will move if you give them a push. As long as they sit more-or-less parallel to the strings, you're golden.

Izzzz True. There are also springs that the adjustment screws go thru, this

allows the pups to re-center themselves. Some springs are the same diameter

from one end to the other, Other springs have a Large end and a smaller end.

 

The Large end of those would go over the round "tabs" directly on the underside

of your pup mounting ring, keeps the pup centered. I'll post a pic of the pups/springs

in one of my gits. I had reversed the springs as an experiment, but went back and

put them on as described above... Note the 490R has the "Big" end of the spring visible,

I reversed 'em as it SHOULD normally be after taking this shot.
