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 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+++++++++++

            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

            By RV-8 Builder/Pilot

            from Forth Worth, Texas

            About Me Experienced

            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.

              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!

                Comments about Gibson Neck Position Humbucker Cover:

                First, I have to say that this is the 2nd order regarding covers. I read reviews & followed advice of others recommending 2 neck covers due to comments of the bridge cover not lining up with the pole pieces. I heard it's a 50/50 chance that they'll fit. We'll, 1 neck cover didn't fit the bridge so my advice if you want to replace your pup covers or decide you want to cover your humbuckers with these covers, just order a neck & bridge cover and take the chance they'll fit....In the end, the inconvenience payed off. I was inspired by Gibson's SG Standard Gold Series Limited Edition axe in Alpine White w/gold hardware & wanted to add gold to the Cherry. The gold really enhances the cherry finish. The original covers are chrome so the sound from the pups hasn't changed. I'd like to say the gold enhances the sound! These covers are recommended for any cosmetic upgrade. Remember to keep the original hardware if you wish to sell or trade in the future...Next, possibly gold knobs with silver top...

                            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.

                              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.

                                        The neck position cover fit a custombucker perfectly; it also fit the bridge position (the bridge position cover did not fit in the bridge).

                                        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 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.
