    You could also just switch the springs to a short piece of surgical tubing (like the Fender setup) just to keep it floating in there but enable lowering.

    Not sure if that does anything for you.
    Words I didn't say hurt my feelers... but this is my safe space.

    Ah, interesting. I'll have to search up one of those. Saw Helmet the first time they played in Baltimore and wow were they awesome. Loved 'em ever since.

    yeah, totally.

    It would if I cared to adjust it, but I really don't. Thanks anyway.

    You can try a powerful pickup like a Quarter Pound and keep it very low. It won't sound exactly like a traditional single coil, but it will be powerful enough to sense the string above it even if it is set low.

    Ok, the IBZ/USA pickup that's in it actually has a cover. So I pulled the pickup out, cut two grooves in the cover for the neck 'bucker wiring to go under and put it back in. Now the cover is flush with the body of the guitar and I'll have to figure out another solution for the 0.00000000000000000000001% of my playing life I need a single coil... or just use my wife's Jem Jr.

    Thanks guys!
