    Hi Antonio, sorry for the delay.
    Yes the '57s are wax-potted. For this reason; be gentle when removing the original cover so as not to disturb any wax that might be between the coil bobbins and the cover; you'll have a more snug fit for the new cover, which is good. That being said - I've always found Gibson waxing to be very clean, so you might not see any evidence of wax on the coil at all. Even so, the pickup cover will fit nicely on the pickup.

    I fitted an aftermarket part to an open zebra coil '57, and it was such a good fit I've never had to solder it in place; it holds on its' own - you may have similar luck.

    If you have doubts about any part of the process - do not risk it - hire a profession luthier or pickup maker.

    Thanks Pesh

    Hi Antonio!

    You need Gibson part PRPC-030, which is the Nickel neck hum bucker cover plate. You can get one from Thomann in Europe HERE

    Thanks, do you know if the humbucker is waxed or not ?

    Da quello che so io dovrebbe essere chambered (dove io per chambered intendo quella scavata)..... se per te è importante falle una bella radiografia ..... altrimenti suonatela e vedi se ti si cuce addosso.... a quel punto non c'è "buco" che tenga.....

    Certo che il dubbio ti viene..... anche la mia 2005 (9 buchetti ma body in unico pezzo) non ha scritte sulla campanella ...... ed il manico '60 (che a me non è che va proprio tanto giù..... però ...)

    Facci sapere

    ^Grazie Tonybenz ,
    in attesa di provarla ho saputo che il peso è di 4.1 Kg , se fosse chambered il body può essere composto da 2 pezzi?
