Pickup Spring Tubing

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

A little too tight

The internal diameter of the tubing is a little too snug on the height adjustment screws. This makes it tough to get the tubing over the height adjustment screw, and also makes it difficult to turn the screws, since as the tubing compresses, the screw doesn't rotate freely inside the tubing, and the tubing twists and resists turning due to friction with whatever it is compressing against. This means the size that you cut the tubing too much be precise, otherwise you will have trouble adjusting the height screws.

If the ID were just a little larger, this stuff would be perfect.

Too tight

I found this tubing is too tight for height adjustment screws used on fender guitars. This results in poor adjustment capabilities. Make it larger pls.

I much prefer to use tubing compared to springs, less faffing around with fiddly installs and in my opinion it looks more professional too!

This stuff is easy to cut and use, not sure what else needs to be said!

what I use

This is not only the most economical way to buy, but lengths can be cut to the exact length needed

Better than springs.

This works very well. Especially helpfull if you have stacked humbuckers in single coil sized holes. Springs are not always long enough for these taller pickups, but this can be cut to whatever length needed.

nice...but caution

Works great; however, cut it a bit shorter than you think. Otherwise it's really, really, really hard to set the pickup heights.

Handy to have

This stuff works very good for pickup height when the pickup is mounted into the body.
