"If mounting to the neck, the spring will go under the pickup tab instead of on top. Mounting to the neck is actually stronger, structurally? "

"I see, this is mounting the pickup to the lid rather than to the neck. I think I like that idea. Might just give it a try on this build. Thanks!"

HiWorking on my 3rd build. On my first I used this pickup from CB Gitty. Really liked the results so I am using another in this build. My question is, what the heck are the 2 springs included in the hardware bag for? I just didn't bother with them on the 1st CBG, do I want to use them on this build?See More
