    I have pickups with covers too in my faded SG 2007. I don´t know about the sound differences with or without covers. 2xsg.jpg

    I cannot tell the difference in sound when the pickups are adjusted to the same height with or without covers. If I noticed any perceived difference in sound, it would be due to the Placebo Effect.

    Thank you. Yes it is Standard 1974-1975 and has original Gibson Bigsby which was optional that time.

    Thanks.
    2004 SG Special

    It started out as an SG Special Faded Worn Yellow. I sent it out to be stripped, grain filled and leveled, refinished to gloss. It was supposed to be TV Yellow, but ended up Aged TV White.
