I am fixing up a mexican made fender strat that I need for a jam tonight. I have done stuff like this before but not on this type of guitar. Anyways simple question. I was changing the pickguard and as I unscrewed everything I noticed the pickups had little cone shaped springs that the screws go through (they are wider on one end than the other). Anyways the problem is I can't remeber how they are susposed to go back in. Do they go with the wider or skinnier end facing up? and do they go underneath the pickup or between the actual pickup and the plastic part that goes ontop? Thanks for any help.
It doens't matter that much, but I'd personally put the wide end against the pickguard.
The wider part of the spring facing up, underneath the pickup.
