Re: Direct Mounting Pickups? How to do so properly?
Well the issue is that you're going to have screw holes showing on the body once you remove the pickup rings.
In saying that, mounting is simple. Get some wood screws that are small enough to fit through the pickup mounting holes, and use some foam under the pickups to give resistance to hold and adjust the pickups to your desired height. The foam from the boxes that pickups typically come in can work, as can something as simple as some adhesive weather stripping that you'd apply to door frames, etc.
