noticed on monday that one of the neck pickup screws was missing on my EPI.
this is not a mounting screw, but one of 2 adjustment screws.
later I found a screw nearby that is possibly the missing one. Having never messed with pickups, can I just try and thread the screw (if it is in fact the missing one) back into the hole, or is there a special procedure?
the strings are still on the guitar.
Help appreciated.
thanks
RIFF

the spring has probably popped, so you'll likely have to pull the pickup to get it back together.

Unfortuneatly dwagar is right, the spring will have shifted and the screw will not be able to go through it. Sometimes you can take enough tension off the strings without removing them and be able to take the pickup out and replace the screw/spring. Good luck..
