pickup question


Recommended Posts

There is no difference according to some guy names Seth
Wrong question. Seth Lover said that there isn't a difference with the p/ups being upside-down (pole-piece screws facing different directions). He never commented on whether or not the covers had anything to do with tone (which they do). The covers act as a tone filter by trapping "stray capacitance" between itself and the coil, which in turn cancels the high frequencies causing the pickup to have a slightly muddy sound.


When I took the cover off the bridge p/u of my LP, it was like having a totally different guitar. It was WAY more clearer/defined.
