Well, at least you can take the pickguard off without having to take the strings off, like in the case of a Strat!  
[QUOTE]I've epoxied metal nuts to the bottom of the pickup, but I think that nylon might be better since it wouldn't effect the magnetic field.  
I wasn't suggesting epoxing a nut to the pickup, but just filling a hole with JB weld and redrilling. If you will use a nut, I suspect you might as well make it stainless steel to minimize any efect on the magnetic field of the pickup.
