Re: Need Some Help With My J Custom
I'd check to see what the bent part is catching on. As mentioned -- it might just be wires that should be laying in a channel, but aren't settled in there properly.
If it can't be fixed by rearranging something in there, I'd simply cut a small notch/groove in the pickup cover to accommodate whatever it's hitting, or else I'd shave off a few mm's on the bottom of the whole cover using a grinder (or just a sanding block).
Pickup covers also come in different heights, but the colors often don't match perfectly, especially when trying to match up with aged covers.
(Afterthought -- that cover shouldn't come down any lower than the pickup base, so you should be able to diagnose the problem with just the cover and pickup lifted out of the guitar. For some reason, the cover isn't seating on the pickup, so they're mismatched.)
