covering my gibson zebra pups

By radarlover

Comments about Gibson Neck Position Humbucker Cover:

I bought a Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro a few months ago and went about making it mine. I channged out the pup surrounds, cream to 5 ply black Custom pick guard, black switch washer. I also ordered nickel pup covers at that time.
I made the mistake of odering one neck and one bridge cover. Both pickups used the neck spacing on the pup screws. The bridge cover fit but the screws did not line up with the holes. Other than that they look fantastic and my Les Paul is just how I want it.

        Comments about Gibson Neck Position Humbucker Cover:

        I bought the Gibson brand nickel neck humbucker cover for my Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute Humbucker guitar that came with exposed coil 490R pickup in the neck position. Paid for the Gibson brand cover in nickel to keep the guitar all Gibson and to give a more traditional gold top "look." The pole spacing for this humbucker cover is 1 15/16 inches and perfectly fit the 490R pickup. I wax potted the inside of the cover (the pickup coils were already was potted), and soldered the cover to the pickup's backplate. Perfect fit, great looking, and I like the slight patina that nickel covers get over time is why I chose nickel over chrome.

        Replacing Gibson CS 356 Humbucker Covers

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Gibson Neck Position Humbucker Cover:

        The gold plating on my beautiful Gibson CS 356 Humbucker pickups was wearing off. This guitar is too beautiful to allow this defect. I ordered the Gibson replacement gold covers from Music 123. They arrived in just a few days. After removing the strings and pickups, I noticed that the covers were soldered to the pickup frame. I found that using a soldering iron was useless in removing the solder, so I carefully cut the covers loose with a sharp #9 exacto blade, The soft solder cuts easily. Slipping off the old covers and then slipping on the new is very easy. The new covers are exactly the same as the original. I re-soldered the frames to the covers and put everything back together. My CS 356 is as good as new. The neck and bridge covers for the 1957 Gibson Humbucker pickups are the same on the CS 356.

            I took the advice of other reviewers that said not to get the bridge position covers because they were not fitting well. I bought 2 neck position nickel covers for my Les Paul that I modded with the Seymour Duncan vintage set and the covers slipped on easily and the holes match up perfectly on both pups. Gives my Paul that classic look. A+++++++++++

              Comments about Gibson Neck Position Humbucker Cover:

              First, if you order these, make sure you order the pickup covers to fit your guitar. If your neck and bridge pickups are the same (holes the same distance apart), then you will need either two neck covers or two bridge covers. I called and ordered a set for my Trad Pro II, 57 humbuckers, and was sent a neck and a bridge cover (Gibson), and the bridge was too widely spaced. MF made things right in a hurry, so no complaints. Like I said earlier, I ordered the Gibson brand, and they fit perfectly. I watched a couple of videos on You Tube on how to install them, and followed the step by step instructions, and the job turned out nice. Note: you will have to remove your strings, and the tail piece will fall out if you aren't expecting to, so be prepared to take it out with your last string. I now have the features of a Trad Pro II with the looks of a standard. Nice!

              Perfect. Added this to a 2014 Gibson Les Paul Custom, that came with naked pickups. I wanted to match my 70s Gibson Les Paul in looks.

              Just solder it on, don't bother with all that wax, or tape, or microphonic hullabaloo. Sounds perfect.

              I wanted that chrome pickup look, so I installed these on a Gibson Les Paul Traditional and Explorer. Read the directions, and you shouldn't have any issues. It's a tight fit, but they will go on with no problem.

                Used this initially on a Gibson 490R for a perfect fit. Using a second one on an Epiphone neck humbucking with the same pole piece spread (not always true). The quality of the plating (chrome) is excellent. The pole piece spread, center-to-center, between the outer pole pieces is 1-9/16". Buyer's should verify this measurement on their pickup and Musician's Friend should list this in the description to avoid confusion/disappointment as some BRIDGE humbuckings will have this same measurement.

                    I bought the set to go on a Goldtop Les Paul '50's tribute. I used a rubber mallet to slightly indent the sides so they are more flush with the pickup to make a better solder connection. I'm not sure that's necessary. I suppose you could just slap them on an they'd stay put. In spite of what the description says, this will alter the tone a bit. A little less bite is how I'd describe it. I hated the way the Goldtop looked stock. The chrome covers made a big difference in the appearance.

                            Great cover for the 490R neck pickup on my Les Paul Studio 50s Tribute. Doesn't need to be soldered, it slips over the coils snugly, holds in place just fine and makes good contact with the pickup base. It really helps eliminate the emi/rfi I was getting from the uncovered coils prior to installation. No problems with tone. The nickel finish looks great with the nickel Stetsbar trem I put on this guitar.

                                I brought a set of these (bridge and neck covers) to hide aftermarket mods on my Les Paul Custom.They work just fine installed on a Gibson 498T at the Bridge and a DiMarzio Air Norton I fitted at the neck. I Secured the covers on the pickups with 4 small solder points on the base of the pickups and they hold in place, look and work just perfect. No noise, "clunking when touched" or sound coloration at all - The Pickups sound as they did before these covers were installed. Thanks Gibson... These are Just Perfect for all us guitar tweakers with an unhealthy attention to aesthetic detail :o)
