    Hey guys where do you guys buy your pickup covers from?
    I’ve stumbled upon a site called mojotone, and they do the ones I want for $8 each. I don’t know if there’s a shipping fee involved yet.
    Thanks.

    Oh, also should have mentioned they're for Seymour Duncan pickups for my Iceman.

    Nearly every site will charge you shipping. Esp on such a small order.

    Be aware not all humbucker covers will fit all humbuckers. The pole piece spacing can vary quite a bit. us made “imperial” spacing is different from imported metric spacing. Some pickups have a different pole piece spacing from neck to bridge positions.

    You might want to pull the pickups and get all the id info you can from each to know exactly what you have. Then you’ll have an easier time finding the right cover for each pickup.

    Im sure Duncan will sell you them too. $10-15 each. Is better than covers that don’t fit.

    Yeah thanks for that man.
    They are the SH4 and SH1N ones. I measured them and they came to 49mm.
    But best thing sounds like to go through Duncan and get them to send me the correct ones.

    I've had great luck with Philadelphia Luthier Tools & Supplies. They have many colors, even ones for pickups with screw poles on both coils (like Dirty Fingers)! Ya just gotta measure your pickups carefully... one (or a couple times) before you buy!
