    Don't know if the jazz pickups are different, but I had a soapbar die in my Thumb NT 6 and I had to get a completely new one because they encase the entire thing in epoxy.

    isn't the warwick parts shop is well over price on MEC stuff? was looking at some 6 string humbucker pickup the other day and the price is like 240 euro for one.

    With that price i could probably buy some EMG, Bart or even Duncans for much cheaper.

    You can't take the covers off like a Fender, they are incased in epoxy.
    And as for the screws, take them out and use a scotch bright pad to clean them up, shot them with a little black krylon paint.

    For ANYTHING Warwick you'll need to find a USA bassed dealer. If you order parts from Germany Shipping Starts at 60 Euro. Then add your OverPriced Items...

    You should always change one string at a time to keep the neck under tension.
