How do the pick-ups mount into a DNA?

I was just looking at some pictures and noticed that the pick-ups are not attached thru the pickguard like my 77FP or BRMR. I am building a clone so I am very interested to know how they are mounted.

you have to use a wood screw (how you call it), insert them into the pickups "ears" and then screw the pickups right onto their cavities. here are some examples:

(ahem, homemade...)

hope this helps.

Did you add the foam to the back of the pickup yourself? just curious because my ibanez has a rectangular shape of wood comin up out of the middle of the pup cavity and theres foam on top of the rectangle

nuno, what guitar is the top pic? I love the extra route for the pickup wires, looks uber professional and a great idea for keeping things tidy.
