Just for laughs

It's hard to buy something from a seller on Reverb when they're a bit ignorant about the product they're selling.

I just bought a left sock from a guy on Ebay.

 

Edit: I see Gibson sells it this way too!! What the hell is the difference between the covers???

I'm confused?? The pole spacing is different between the bridge and neck pickups (read 490r 490t). Its like if your left foot were bigger than your right.

There is a difference in some pickups as to the spacing of the pole pieces.  I ran into this a few months back when I had to replace a pickup on my Les Paul Lite.  All the humbuckers on my Les Pauls (Burstbucker Pro Lead and Rythm, Burstbucker 61R and 61T, and 490R measure 2 and 1/8 inches from the outside of one e string pole piece to the outside of the other e string pole piece.  But the 498T in the bridge position on the LP Lite measure 2 and 1/4 inches.  So it does take a different cover than all the others.

By the way, I also was given some golf socks made by Puma that have a left and a right and they fit better. 🤣

The strings are spaced wider at the bridge than they are at the nut, so the pole piece spacing is different from bridge to neck pickup
