I have a set of Gibson Dirty Finger Pickups and want to put them into a nickel no hole pickup cover, is there anything special I need to do before soldering it in, like maybe but a piece of tape over the pole pieces. If anyone knows, fire back at me! I am thinking off covering the pole pieces so they dont contact the metal and cause me any problems. Thanks in Advance!

Many people say that covering adjustment screws is a no-no, especially with high output double-row pickups. I must say I agree.

But, if the size of the pictured cover is compatible with the DFs, who knows, it may look pretty cool!

A quick internet search should lead you to a purchase option...in Philadelphia. If you decide to go this route, end-result photos please?

Thanks for the reply, I have decided to sell the pickups and leave the originals in the LP, I did buy 2 different cover sets for them, a full cover and an open center cover, the opens look good on them because it leaves the df open to see and just provide a border around them and the full cover looks good too. I bought them from philadelphia luthiers. Any how thanks for the input.
