Hey everyone, I wanted to ask about pickups covers.
If I use Wood to cover my pickups. What effect would it be?

What if the pickups were.. UNDER the body? To look like the Variax line from Line 6.

um, it would uberize it.

actually the wood would absorb or reflect the sound so the pickups wopuldnt work as well. granted strong pups would read it a bit through the wood, it is not recommended.

Uhh wood doesn't "absorb" magnetic fields.

TS I wouldn't put pickups under the body but you can use thin wood strips as pickup covers. Just makes sure they don't interfere with the pickup height.

There was a guy who mounted his pups under the wood around here before. Worked out fine for him, should work for you.
