Is it possible to buy covers for humbuckers because i dont like how the dust and whatnot can go under them. What would be the cost ($) for both? Also would like to have them covered for a unique appearance. Muchos gracias!

Pictures would've helped, but I assume at the moment you have open buckers, where you can see the casing for both coils rather than looking at it as a whole unit?

Cases are normally available, on eBay I imagine they'd probably be around $10, $15 a set. Fixing them can be a bit troublesome so, as they are held onto the pickup with solder. You basically solder the longer sides of the case to the base of the pickup so they stay in place. It's not difficult as such, but it's a bit like soldering to the back of a volume pot as they just soak up all the heat.

yeah, you can buy them, but i think you have to solder them on and then wax pot them.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

ah okay thanks. yeah i forgot to put what guitar i have, it's an Epi LP Special II, so yeah I see a pair of coils for both pickups.
sucks i'll have to solder, wouldve been easier if i was able to screw it in

Look into the pickup covers made by WD Music Products. They slip right over top of the pickup, no soldering or screwing required.

I put one on my Jackson to cover up the Dimarzio X2N I put on it.



It doesn't rattle nor does it interfere with the pickups sound. Plus it was only $6.

Just get plastic ones and you wont have to solder anything or wax pot them. They will look like EMG's instead of chrome PAF's like on a Gibson.

HERE Is a link for some covers at "All Parts" They have ones made out of plastic, metal or wood


good idea

Oh, your guitar is blue. In that case, get the vintage chromes. The first models that came up when I searched your guitar model were the white, red, and sunburst models, which all would look good with gold.

WD's pickup covers don't require soldering, they slip right onto the pickup. You do need to remove the strings, though.
