Ok so I just bought a 1963 univox High-flyer for 100$US. Now according to the guy I bought it from it needs new pickup casings or something. But the bridge pickup just falls out so...Now also the nut that the strings go through moves around, what should I do for that. I need alot of help so please respond.

For starters, get the nut reglued or replaced and some pickup rings. Solve those two problems first. Any luthier or guitar tech can do that.

Pics would help this thread. To be honest, Univox were not that well made, they were a budget brand. You could sell the parts off seperately to other Univox owners and get the satisfaction of knowing their Univoxs would work better. As far as I remember the Highflyer is the Mosrite clone Kurt Cobain used, and apparently liked the stock pickups of.

So I just have to glue back on the nut and buy pickup rings.

well, im guessing the pickup is falling out, because it needs a new casing or pickup ring like he said. The pickups look pretty standard, so getting replacement casings shouldnt be to hard. Is it just the pickup that is falling out or is the casing also? If the casing is coming out, U might need to fill the screw holes and redrill them. As for the nut, why not just glue it down? My guitar teacher had a broken nut on his strat, but the preasure of the strings kept it in one place.
Good luck with your restoration project

And then the bridge looks like its missings something to. It looks like a jaguar bridge but what do I need there. And also do you know how much I could get for a 63 high flyer custom deluxe

take the guitar into a shop, tell them you want the pickups repaired (not replaced) along with a new bone nut. you're not looking at a huge expense, not more than what you paid for the guitar in the first place and everything will be fixed.

Pic link doesn't work. Due to the Cobain link with the guitar, the right person would pay a lot of money for it, then you could get a Mosrite, or a high quality copy. Just a thought.
