i recently bought used seymour duncan quater pound pickups for my p-bass off a friend for practically nothing. now my problem is.. on the surface of the pickup closer to the neck, the metal poles actually stick up out of the black plastic covering.. the pole closest to the g-string is the least raised, but as the strings get thicker, the poles below are raised higher. sorry if my desrcription is weak, its kind of hard to explain. my question is are these pickups supposed to look like this? and if not, is it something that can be fixed? i dont know anything about pickups, so maybe some of you can help me.
