i have an SD humbucker whose base plate is drilled for direct mount so it will no longer work with pickup height screws. So how do I replace the base plate?
I see 4 screws on the bottom and 6 pole pieces. Can I safely unscrew all of them and take the pickup apart? And put everything back together with a new base plate?
Yes, I am mechanically challenged...the last time I did something like this, I took apart a motorized side mirror on my car and as I backed out the last screw, I watched helplessly as all the gears and push rods fell into a big pile onto the garage floor.
