Getting mounting rings off?


I would like to remove my mounting rings from my RG570 (I heard it sounds bit better), but I want to save me from problems, so I ask before trying something. Is it hard to and possible at all to have pickups there without those rings?

How does it work? Spring gets to different position? Thanks for the tips or helpful links.

Re: Getting mounting rings off?

Unfortunately it doesn't work quite that way. You're thinking of hard mounted pickups. Rg570s have much deeper pickup routings so you can't just bolt the pickup to the body. To do that, you will need to do some serious surgery (installing blocks in the pup routes, then routing it out, then repainting your guitar.
