    Default Got a guitar with a deep cavity....

    My Frankenkramer's got a VERY deep cavity and the pickup has to be direct mounted. What's the best way to handle this? Should I stick some foam to the bottom of the cavity?

    Take it to the dentist.

    But seriously, just use long screws and springs. If the pickup tends to rock back and forth, your foam idea would help.
    In 1861 as Confederate forces were about to fire on Fort Sumter, the Blue and Gray had far more in common than the blue and red today. What fellowship can "the truth shall set you free" ever have with "what is truth"? Barring a major epidemic or nuclear attack to explode the postmodern myth that the reality outside our heads depends for its very existence on what we think of it, secession is coming...

    Couldn't you just glue a wood block in? That's what I had to do with the filtertron in my gibson.
