Pickup-ring Mounting/drill Holes?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I'm currently working on my first guitar, and I'm at the stage where I have to decide whether to use pickup mounting rings or not. Supposing I do use the rings, will I need to drill holes for the ring mounting screws, or should I just turn the screws into the wood? (The wood is mahogany, in case that matters.)

I'll also need to do the same for the cavity control cover mounting screws.

Now supposing I decide to forego the mounting rings and mount the pickups directly to the body, what type of screws should I use to mount them? Do I need to use springs? And once again should I drill pilot holes for the mounting screws?

Thanks very much!

O. G.
