Ok first of all, these don't just fit on Gibson pickups. They fit on any vintage pickup! They also fit on any progressive pickup,but the holes aren't a lined perfectly. A little trimming did the trick!It went on my ibanez (with Seymour Duncan Pickups) perfectly! Oh and what that one guy said about the gold color rubbing off is wrong. He/she must have had a factory defect. All you do then is send it back for a new pair.

Ordered both neck and bridge chrome covers for my Les Paul Trad Pro II. The neck p/u cover fit fine, but the bridge cover did not fit at all. Turns out the neck covers fits perfect on both pickups, but the 'bridge' p/u cover doesn't work on either.

    Comments about Gibson Bridge Humbucker Cover:

    Have used this on a Gibson 490T for a perfect fit. Using a second one to replace the cover on an Epiphone humbucking which has identical spacing to the 490T (not all do). Quality of the plating (chrome) is excellent. It is essential to know the measurement of the distance between the outer pole pieces (center-to-center) before purchase. Musician's Friend should list this measurement (2-1/16") in the description as some guitars have different spacing for the bridge pickup. Also, you must grind/file the plating from the inside edge of the cover to make the solder stick.

    Doesn't Fit all Bridge Pickups & Difficult Packaging

      Comments about Gibson Bridge Humbucker Cover:

      Replace the neck cover with a replacement neck cover and it fit perfectly. Attempted to replace the bridge cover with this bridge cover and the holes didn't line up. As others have mentioned, the neck cover fits both the neck AND the bridge pickup on my 2006 Les Paul. Regarding the packaging, the clear celophane packaging they used was thin and glued itself to the cover. It took almost 2 hours of scraping and scratching the cover before I had it all removed... only to find out the cover didn't fit! BEYOND FRUSTRATED!

                Installed on a Gibson Faded SG. Was going to solder in place, but a perfect, tight fit talked me out of the extra work. Really dressed up those drab 490s.

                  Great cover for the 498T bridge 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 restored my 1972 Les Paul Cherry Sunburst Custom. The gold pickup covers were missing when I bought the guitar in 1982. My guitar has the original PAF "T" bucket pickups. I took the guitar to a professional to install the pickup covers and new black mounting rings. The neck cover fit the neck pickup fine but the bridge cover did not fit the bridge pickup. However, the neck cover fit both pickups, so I had the tech order another neck cover and it worked out fine. So, if you have an older Les Paul,keep this in mind.

                          Comments about Gibson Bridge Humbucker Cover:

                          I bought the Gibson brand nickel bridge humbucker cover for my Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute Humbucker guitar that came with exposed coil 498T pickup in the bridge position. The guitar is basically a low-end gold top, so I wanted the look to be more traditional. 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 2 1/16 inches and perfectly fit the 498T pickup. Just to be thorough, I wax potted the inside of the cover (the pickup coils were already was potted), and soldered the cover to the pickup's backplate. So it's as close to a factory covered pickup as I could make it. Perfect fit, great looking, and I like the slight patina that nickel covers get over time is why I chose nickel over chrome.
