    Ok, this is probably a dumb question, but here it goes. I have a couple pickups that I want to store for awhile. I dont have the original plastic cases the pups came in. Is there any special way I should store them or would they be alright if I just wrapped them in bubble wrap and put them in a shoe box?

    Thanks Guys.
    I use a tacklebox for all my pickup/electronics gear! I have the kind with the pull out shelves in the bottom-perfect sized for my pickups. The top has a large storage space where my soldering iron goes. I had a JB and HR in there for 3 years and they were fine.

    There you go, also keep them away from electromagnetic fields, and large amounts of current (duct taping them to the power inlet of you home wouldn't be a great idea ) ... if you wrap them up a couple of those moisture absorbing packets in with them wouldn't be a bad idea. It also helps to wrap them in paper first, just in case the plastic degrades (maybe there was a solvent of cleaner on your hands that you didn't realize ... that will keep the plastic from melding to the pup (also in case something leaks on it), they also make a special paper that is treated with a chemical that inhibits oxidation of the metal ... you'll have to look around for it, but it's out there. Not really necessary, but good nonetheless.
