I took my Eastman T-184 out of the case to find this:


The spring is rolling around in the guitar. I can see it, and can get it, so that isn't a major concern, but how do I fix this?
Easy. Take the strings off, then unscrew the 4 screws at the corners of the pickup ring, lift the pickup and ring off the guitar, retrieve the spring, then put it where it belongs and put it all back together.
