    I've acquired a P bass, the pickup poles are not flush with the surface of the casing and seem to have dropped loose. Disassembling them reveals that they seem to need attaching to the underside of the cover. Does anybody now what kind of adhesive to use to do this, is it some kind of gel, or a glue?

    Mine are like that too. Covers arent attached to pickups. Just throw a tad bit of extra foam in the pup cavity and it should be good.

    fender bass pickups aren't supposed to be attached to their covers!

    you indeed use thick foam to press up on the pickups themselves, which get held down by the covers.

    From what I can tell, the poll pieces are a press fit into the bobbins (interference fit)
    The foam might be the easiest way although a drop of silicone caulk could be used if it makes you happier. Don;t think I'd use anything thin like super glue that could get into the windings nor epoxy that would make a repair or rewind very difficult.
