pickups sometimes have covers.

the always have screws or pole pieces in them.


strings dont go thru pickups.

they do go thru the bridge.


does it look like 1, 2 or 3?

Yeah, strings don't go through the pickups, they go through the bridge and the saddles are the things that the strings rest on.

if you are talking about the things actually in your pickups those are just called pole pieces.

you're losing about 87% of your sustain with those saddles. You need some gold plated brass saddles. Sustain for days.

Is it mounted flat on the guitar? Also, in my opinion, strings NEVER would have to go through pickups. I think that those things that the strings go thorough are saddles. The saddles are what controls the strings' length with the springs. Hope this helps.

For real? I want more sustain.
