Hey, if i have a guitar that has a recessed humbucker (no mountain plate, screws right into the body) can i replace it with any humbucker or do i need a specific type?
Should drop right in unless you go for a bigger spacing for tremolo equipped guitars.
The screws used on those kind of pickups are different than the ones used with rings. The screws on your guitar may not go through the holes on a standard pickup. The ones most companies use are small diameter machine screws. Im going to imagine your uses wood screws which have a vastly different thread pitch. You can always buy some rings and put em on that way. You didnt mention if yours are the P90 style or standard humbuckers.
