wait- is it that the screw dosnt actually hold the pickup up? or is it that it rattles around? if its the latter you should use springs, or rubber tubes that usually come with the pickup.

This is just an idea, but it might work. You know those little springs inside of the "clicky type" of push button topped ball point pens? You may be able to use those to hold the pups in??? Its worth a shot.

there should be springs that go between the pickguard and the pickup that keep the pickup stationary. if you don't have any, i'd guess that they're pretty cheap, or you could probably cannibalize some springs from pens that would work.

so you got your veneer off of ebay? sweet. i've been looking to buy some, so i'll check there.
Signatures are for posers.

oh wait, that's a signature.
