Pickups rattle

Post  flycodybishop on Thu Feb 17, 2011 1:05 am

I am playing an Epiphone Thunderbird IV and the front pickup rattles a lot when I play...

Anyone know why its doing that or how to fix it? I have tried tightening it but it didnt do anything. It sounds like the screw is loose and thats why its rattling but the screw is tight, its just the pickup.. Thanks in advance!

Perhaps the cover is not fitting snugly over the coil part.

Do you know a way I can check if thats the case and fix it? I dont want to mess with it without knowing what I am doing so I dont accidently break it or something lol

Not a big job really. Just take off the strings and take out the screws holding in the pickups. Once you have the pickup in your hand, flip it over an see what happens. If it falls out, it was loose. If it doesn't, then no problem.
