I have two squier p bass pickups, I want to take the black covers off and put white ones on it, how would I go that? I looked and i didn't want to damage them.

all I have experience with is strat pickups but on them the screw that holds the pup into the pickgaurd was also holding on the cover.

these seem stuck on and my fingers can't get around anything but the magnet and I don't think that's a good place to grip and tug

some cheap p pickups have the covers glued on. you will have to force it off

They could be glued on, or the pickups could be wax potted, in which case you'd have to melt the wax. Painting them sounds like a good idea. Get some vinyl paint and it should work.

^ any tips for where I should Push from?


I did this recently. Mine were glued, but not strongly... i kinda held the 'winged' plastic part of the pickup covers, that the screws go through; and pushed down on a pole piece with a screwdriver.

It popped right off.

Lol It's a squier affinity I got for $50, if that's not the definition of cheap IDK what is

I am taking it down to base wood, several threads of mine have popped up concerning parts of the project, but needless to say, I think it will look good with white covers, the painting idea sounds better than shelling out $10+ shipping though, so I got my answer

Never much cared for the word "cheap" some folks don't take to well to it either.
Inexpensive is much better. You may have only paid $50 for that Squire but there are some peeps that can't afford much better not everyone can afford top end gear so why run the chance of slighting someone ?

I understand where you are coming from, to me they mean the same thing, I guess saying "cheap" can sting with the right inflection, but I'm pretty sure if you have inexpensive gear, you know it, hell I've never spent over $375 on a single piece of gear. I guess I am cheap
