I just bought an Epiphone SG and I love this guitar to death, but the pick ups wobble and it kind of bugs me. They don't wobble when I play or anything, but they move when you touch them. I don't know if this is normal for guitars with these kind of pick ups (chrome covered Alnico) or if it's something I should get fixed.

Help? =\

they should slightly move when touched but not wobble.

they should hold their position.
because their relation to the strings effects your tone.

if they wobble and shift around when you pick up or play the guitar,

then the springs that hold them in place are weak.

if that's the case, then post back for more instruction.

yea what jj1565 said basically. theyreheld by springs so its only natural that they move when you touch them but if they cant hold their spot whilst being played you either need
new springs on the same type or higher pressure/resistance springs.
People in the pit take my post way too seriously.

I have had people ask me to fix this so called problem. Usually I'll replace the springs with beefier ones and I hear some guys cut a small piece of foam rubber and place it under the pup to give it more stability. I never tried it myself but it seems like it works.

personally i prefer rubber tubing over springs.
mostly because it lasts so long and it's so easy to keep handy.

little springs are impossible not to lose.

They don't move when I play (strum), but I feel like I can practically rip off the covers if I wanted to. They also wobble when I move the guitar, and I move the guitar quite a bit when playing. xP
