Okay I have just picked up a used bass for a pretty good price. It's a 1987 Peavey Fury. Anyways I have a couple of problems I need to fix. First the pickups have dropped down, as in the metal parts of them are sunken into the plastic lower than it should be. Second the "A" string is not sitting down in the head of the fingerboard, I think it might be a problem with the bridge. Last but not least I need to remove the strings, clean them and restring it. Does anyone know of any good books or places online that talk about how to fix and correct things like these? We have a local shop or two that will do it for 20-30 dollars but I would like to know how to do it myself. Any information that can point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Jared
