Pickup covers

Recommended Posts

I've got an SG Special faded brown and I love everything about it except maybe the uncovered pickups. That is I'd like to have them covered, somewhat for the look and somewhat for protection. The tape wrap around the coils has a couple of nicks in it and I don't want it to get worse. So how hard is it to add covers to pickups? And will the fit the same or will routing need to be done? Any tips appreciated, even if it's 'go to a professional'.

Thanks Bill

Very nice! Is that just metal pickup rings added? I hadn't thought of that. Mine would look almost the same except for having a matte finish.

Covers go right on and there are various covers including the regular factory covers by Gibson. I think maybe the tone may be affected slightly and may or may not be a concern. Something to consider.

Hey Revolution Six, are those separate pickup rings or are they part of the pickup, such as Guitar Fetish's Retro pickups?

I've seen some nice pieces from Stew-Mac that might do the trick. I wondered if the tone or volume might be affected by covering the pickups but this option would skip that issue. Thanks for the idea.
