    Hello

    I am not sure about this but i gave my Fender MiM Telecaster to the luther for a fretjob and pickup change week ago and one thing bothers me. While bridge pickup is mounted stable into the bridge plate the neck pickup moves sliphlty when i push it to the front or back. It doesnt move top or bottom when i push it. Is it normal for Teles? It doesnt move when i try to shake guitar .

    I don't remember if previous pickup moved that way, maybe? Never paid attention on that

    That's normal. Nothing to worry about.

    Quite normal; the pickup is mounted on either springs or latex tubing, depending on the model, so there will be degree of movement.

    Disgusting.

    I’ve never seen such a bad case. Don’t leave it around in the open, or it may spread to your other instruments!

    Sadly, there’s only one thing to do- ship it to me, for disposal in my special containment facility.

    What a boomer, pickup has sinked in. However i had old set of screws and rubbers. Managed to repair it and made it twice as stable with thicker screws and rubbers. Damn you fender
