Pickup Covers


Recommended Posts

Do not just pull them off. You will most likely need a good soldering iron, and a heat gun. The back plate should be soldered to the covers. The covers should be sealed in wax. This wax isolates the pickup winding from the covers. It also eliminates a harmonic feedback that occurs between the covers and the windings. There is a thread on the forum somewhere that explains the entire procedure if you really want to do it, just do a search. Many on the board will recommend against doing so though, as damage to the pickup can occur. Best solution would just be to purchase pups without the covers on them.
