I have a set of gold McCarty pickups in my SE Santana and I want to switch the pole piece screws with some nickel covered ones I have.

So, my question is this; Is it as simple as just swapping the screws or are there other factors like height etc to consider?

I apologize for the remedial nature of my question and also appreciate any help....

Just do them one at a time, Jon. I've done this 3 - 4 times without incident.

There are some who suggest the angle of the screw head matters. That's voodoo to me. Screw height is a factor with measurable results.
