I'm sorry for posting another one of these but this is slightly different. As those who helped me in a previous thread of mine may know, I messed with the pickups on my '69 CS Strat a bit in an attempt to level out the forward slant in both the neck and middle pickup. Although I am now aware that this slanting is quite normal in many strats, I was not at the time and was quite desperate to correct it. So I'm now concerned that I may have caused internal damage to the pickups or the pickup fixings. So going partly from a suggestion by a member, I decided to try and physically force the pickups into a more level position. What I did was, I raised the neck pickup up moderately high. Then, with my two fingers, I pushed down and put pressure on the upward slanting side of it, and at the same time tried tightening the pickup screws (raising them)... They would seem to level out when I did this but as soon as I released the pressure the pickup just returned (I assume) to it's original slanted position. Now I repeated this a number of times, stupidly applying quite a lot of force. I also did this briefly on the middle pickup. I'm really feeling worried that I possibly caused some kind of damage to the pickups (or at least the fixings) after pushing on them so much... Now to be honest I haven't noticed any technical problems (they seem to function fine) but I do noticed that the pickups can be moved slightly. For example if I push the neck and middle lightly they will move.. Sometimes make a faint click sound. Please can someone let me know if they think it's possible I could have caused damage to them! Or even give me an idea of how sturdy single coil pickups are. I can't find any info online. I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks. And once again I apologize for this nuisance.
