I have this Ibanez custom shop (low end) and I decided to put new pickups in over the vintage rusty ones. Some life happened and it sat there for 4 years. I have some Seymore duncan pickups that I got used (No screws) The guitar came to me flat mounted pickups no rings. I am now in a small town and unable to put this together with out the help of Amazon and JEMsite.

If any one could just link some screws to purchase? I have zero hardware. I have no idea how they were mounted with out rings and I am not good at this and usually purchase the wrong parts and mangle the projects.

Thank you in advance.



(If I need rings I would want some black low profile ones that are thin)

This kit should have eveything you need from this day forward lol. You need to drill out the mechine screw threads in the pickups. Then put the wood screws through them, and use the springs on the underside of the pickup so you'll be able to raise and lower them.

It looks like someone may have added a ring to one... or one had a ring and they other didn't. I've never seen that before but i guess it's possible. You may have a subtle difference in tone... but since one has had a ring you might as well just add a ring to the other one and mount them that way. You can buy flat mount rings on amazon as well. Comes with screws and springs. If you mount them in pickup rings you won't have to drill out the humbucker mount holes. You can just use the machine screws that come with the rings.
