Anyone installed firebird pickups properly before?

Postby ancientbones » Mon Sep 25, 2017 10:45 pm

Having trouble with a recent build.

I put in Firebird pickups, but the neck pickup keeps on popping up. Am I supposed to drill a hole for the mounting screws to go into the body? Right now I just have them in the pickguard.

Any ideas?

Like with normal humbuckers you need to have springs between the tabs on the pickup and the underside of the pick guard/pickup ring

A tip, if you get les Paul type springs that are really long cut them down to about an inch for firebird pickups
