    Hola,

    I installed a neck pickup on my partscaster and I am am mounting through the pickguard and threaded the pickup itself with machine screws. Apparently (reading previous TDPRI posts) the proper way to do it is with a clip/retainer that the thinlines came with.
    I am unable to find a photo, does anyone have a photo of this hen tooth or know what Fender used?


    Gracias in advance

    I ended up using a screw and a bolt underneath, it's a pain

    Did you glue it? I though the bolt method was straight forward. We’ll I hope my threads don’t strip!
