    I was wondering if there is a method of "shimming" a pickup. I need to raise it quite a bit. thanks

    There should be some foam rubber under the pickup. If not, cut a mouse pad to the proper shape.

    sponges, or if you need something more permanent you can fill it up with wood putty, thats what i did when i drilled too much space putting in a new pickup
