Has anyone ever converted long leg pickups to short leg?

I don't have a tool shop to work with, but can you do this with basic tools? If so, how did you do it?

Thanks!

Depending on the pickup you're speaking about;
Measure carefully, cut the leg to size, normally the base is thin enough to bend by hand, so you could just bend it with a pair of pliers.
Then you'd need to shape using a file and drill the holes.
This can get messy so I'd avoid it where possible.

Yeah, probably not something I want to attempt on a $300 set of BKP'S then.

Thanks!

You can snap them off fairly easily too.

Easiest thing is to probably swap the base plate with another pickup if you are able. Should be able to just screw on and off.
