hey ive owned my ibonez for quite some time and the humbucker thats along the neck keeps like coming undone . when i got it it wasnt really atached so i took it back and they had someone repaire it for me but it only lasted for a short while. I think that the screw thy used was to short or something my question is how hard will it be to take it out reposition the spring and put in a longer screw? would i mess anything up or should i take it in again ? and im also looking to buy some new humbuckers (mine are stock not bad though ) how hard would it be for me to install those? are there any tips i should know about things to look out for? or should i just go ahead with it? and im very good at michanics so im sure i can do it i just wanna make sure i know what im doing lol thx hope to hear back soon!!!!!

What? It takes like 30 minutes max to change out pickups. It's one of the easiest things to do. The hardest part are the damn springs. Once you get past that, it's two wires to solder, unless you are coil tapping, but anyone that is going to pay someone do to it wouldn't know what coil tapping is anyway. That is the biggest waste of money to pay someone to do a simple job. It's like taking your guitar into the shop to have them replace the strings. It's REALLY hard to screw up a pickup replacement. If you have a Fender style guitar and say that someone should do it for you, you deserve a kick in the nuts. Talk about easy. My Les Paul took me 30 minutes and soldering in a cavity is not an easy task, but it can be done by about anyone.

judging by your spelling, it would be impossible to put in new pickups. Your spelling reminds me of a caveman. This isnt a friggin instant message, youre talking to real people, not your chronies who think its cool to spell things wrong.
You with a (as you would spell it) "sawtering eyeurn" would end up in severe burns, or a wrecked pickup, or both.
