Okay, so I am replacing some pickups in my guitar.
The stock ones were screwed directly to the body...
My Seymours do not fit the stock screws for mounting to the body, and the screws that came with them are not fit for screwing into wood. They did however come with mounting rings.
So what shall I do? Take a drill to the guitar and use the mounting rings? Or somehow convince the pickups to accept the stock screws (is that possible)?
Also I am just curious if you guys have any opinions as to whether there are sonic advantages to either mounting method.
