Pickup covers for LP Studio


Recommended Posts

You would use Humbucker sized pickup covers, the Alcino classics are Humbucker pickups are they not? You can just push them on or solder them on the bottom. I bought some for my SG, and just pushed them on. The ones I bought don't have holes, but I now prefer the look with holes, so I think I may change them.


Some say it does impact the sound, makes it a bit muddier. If anything I think it improved the sound of my SG. Because they're metal they have become magnetised so there's a greater magnetic area that picks up the vibration of the strings. That's my theory anyway, I could simply be imagining it!
