im gonna be changing my pickups in my jag-stang in about a week. but what i want to do is when i change the single coil (im changing it to a texas special) is put a pickup cover on it like the ones mustangs have where you cant see the pole pieces. now i am wondering if this will affect the sound or tone at all. please tell me if you think it will or not.
it'll effect the tone in that the poles will no longer be staggered and the midrange strings won't have as much output, but the difference is negligable. the cover itself will not effect the sound.
