I recently swapped out a pair of Tele p/ups and a set of Stat p/ups. Now I realize I don't have a clue how to store the old p/ups.
HELP!

My old LP copy pickups are in the boxes/plastic cases the new ones came in--in a drawer.

Although I wouldn't be worried if they became de-magnetized.

If I buy a pair of humbuckers they usually come in boxes, so when you swap use the box the new ones came in.

Remagnetizing alnico polepieces in a single-coil is easy to do. Remagnetizing alnico bar magnets in a P90 or HB, not so much. It can certainlybe done, but is not as simple as waving a 3/4" diameter neodymium over them, like you can with individual polepieces.

That said, my understanding is that magnetic "tug" is an exponential function of distance, not linear That is, the square of the distance matters.

At the same time, what you're concerned with is demagnetizing, right? If you were to "stack" those pickups so that the south of one set of polepieces was always adjacent to the north of another, it wouldn't be any different than having a bunch of loose magnetized polepieces, stacked end to end, and those wouldn't lose any strength by doing so.
