Pickups seem loose.

I've got a new Gibson Les Paul. The pickups seem a little loose. Of course, I've only been playing for about two months, so I don't know what's normal.

Is it normal for there to be a little play/cushion?

Hey, it's a Gibson.......

only joshin' - a little bit of looseness/play supposedly will help stop microphonic feedback, and some Gibbos can feel pretty loose as the springs are quite long.
