Question How to direct mount pickups? diagrams? Pictures? Videos?

Hello all, I am doing my first Jem project. I am going to direct mount the pickups right into the wood. However I want to be able to adjust the height. Does anyone know of any diagrams pictures or videos on how to do this. I know it is done on the new black FP Jem,but I can't find any info on it or how it is done.

Hello, this the same way i did my direct mount pickups in my JPM. Instead of surgical tubing I used springs, but both will work. hope this helps. I can't post links so I'll just type it out for you.

Some people (myself included) feel that direct mount give a better, "truer" tone to your pickups, but depending on how one actually mounts them....direct mount may not make any difference.

Thanks guys for you help. What type of screws did you use? Can you adjust the pickups height with the screws that you used?
