Its just the pickup covered in wax, and that metal cover keeps the wax from being scratched and still good. It just reduces noise and keeps your pickuck nice and clean sounding.
Im pretty sure.

EDIT: just realized they are soldered on and not covered in wax. The process of covering putting wax in them is called potting though , youtube it.

It's fairly simple to do. But if you don't know what your doing don't do it!
You need a soldering iron of a certain wattage. So that you don't damage the whole pickup.
And also the wax potting is a pain in the ass to get off.
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.
