    The rubber tubing is almost useless for bass pickups. You need a good quality foam that doesn't compress too easily. I have found neoprene closed cell foam works good or a rubber based foam weather stripping also works. They non-closed cell poly weather strip doesn't have enough spring back to work well.

    Also make sure the pickups aren't hanging up on the pickguard or the body routing.
  3. i cut up a mousepad and put 3 layers together with double-sided tape. it works......... i have the same problem, though. i think it's inexactly place screws. if they're not straight (and mine aren't, it's an MIM jazz) the pickup won't slide on the screws properly. it's annoying, but tolerable.
