    Perhaps they should be called "frames"?

    Sounds more like it, now we just to convince the rest of the world of that term. While we're at it, how about those pickup "rings"!!? That has always bugged me! :)
    So that's it gasket, I thought you'd hit me up with lots of information on sizing, etc. I'm waiting....:hmm:

    Look for covers that fit your pickups, they usually have measurements posted. Dont forget once you cover your pickups you should wax pot them otherwise they will squeal terribly with any gain on them. Ok I see youre using open frames, they should be ok no squeal.

    I don’t see the appeal of those frames or open covers. It’s like installing hubcaps with the hub exposed. Makes no sense to me.

    Purely cosmetic but the Faded pups look sloppy and unfinished sitting it that large hole with all that room around them . That's it man. It i had 1974 VW Bug without the chrome bumpers, i'd add them.Mine also get lots of Quarter coin powder in that space as I play with Quarters, not plastic picks,, so it will cut down a tiny bit on the bulid up.

    I do agree that gap does look unfinished and I always install full covers on my SG Specials with Humbuckers.
