Pickup Spring Tubing

About This Item

Just like on vintage Fenders, this rubber tubing avoids microphonic feedback and rattles that metal pickup springs can cause.

An alternative to coil springs; simply cut to length and slide over your height screws. 1-foot length, 1/4" diameter.

Tight fit

By

Verified Buyer


Bought this to replace a couple of the Fender factory tubing pieces on my Jeff Beck Strat. When I adjusted the bass sides of the middle and neck pickups, I discovered that the tubing wasn't long enough at 3/10 inch to fill the space between the pickguard and the base of the pickup.

I cut a replacement piece and did a test fit; I found that the tubing was a very tight fit on the pickup screws. A little dab of petroleum jelly on the tip of the screw fixed the problem.

Especially this stuff. I HATE pickup height adjustment Springs! Tubing is great on Strats with single coils. Time to experiment with it on humbucker screws . Thanks again!

this tubing is great but it is small. i use lithium grease and no problems at all. theres only 2 things on the net i know of, this one and Fender makes a cut up tube . i dont like pre cut anything, i want to size it myself. grease it up and youll be fine. price is excellent.

Too small

By

Verified Buyer


The tubing is too small for strat screws. StewMac needs to check the diameter they're selling. It may work for humbucker screws, but I don't own any...

Response from StewMac

Thank you for your review. The tubing will be pretty tight when fitting onto a Strat Pickup Height Screw. You should still be able to fit it on the screw and have it function properly. Give us a call if you are still having issues with this product. Anyone from our friendly Customer Support Team is here to help! 1-800-848-2273

Tube Spring Boogie

I use this tubing along with the two different metal springs S-M sells when I need to deal differently with space restrictions under my pickguards. This stuff has the added advantage of not making any noise, mechanical or harmonic, when installed.
