I just got a set of Seymour Duncan humbuckers, and I want to change the pole pieces to gold ones. The problem is that only one coil's set of pole pieces will unscrew. Is there a way to get the other six out?

And I don't know if this should go in the customizing forum or not. Oh well.

Its possible, but youd have to take the whole pickup apart. Also I dont know of anywhere to get replacement pole pieces. I would just look for gold pickups.

The slugs slide out. But may or may not be part of the tone designed into the pickup. Maybe find something to paint the ends of the slugs versus replacing them.

why not paint them?
