The holes in the base plate were NOT threaded. I had to drill the holes bigger and then tap them. Traditionally Telecaster bridge pickup base plates are copper plated steel. This plate is not a copper color. That's not really a big concern of mine because ultimately when the pickup is installed in the guitar the base plate is not visible. However it would have been nice if the plates were copper in color to give the pickup a traditional appearance. Come Allparts, I expect better from you!
