While I still haven't received my SG Faded yet, I am gearing up mentally to install a pair of chrome pup covers on it. I like the look, pure and simple. I know that this may have been asked and answered already, but I'm unable to find any specific answers to my questions, thus this new thread. Please forgive my ignorance as I'm venturing into, for me at least, unknown territory here. Here then are my questions: 1) The 490R and 490T Humbuckers have 2 rows of 6 pole pieces for a total of 12 each pup. The covers have only 1 row of 6 holes each. How are these able to fit over the pickup without damaging either the pup or cover? 2) At Gibsons site, the only pic I can find of either pickup has a gold cover already installed. There are what appear to be 6 screw heads along the face of it. Are these adjustable? I ask because they look to be gold plated also, yet the surface of each pole piece is the standard silver color. What is their function? 3) When it comes time to make the purchase, should I stick with Gibson original covers, or can I go with covers from another source such as Allparts? 4) Lastly, after reading in another thread about SG Faded pups sounding thin, I believe that the time to remedy this will be during the install of covers. I don't like the idea of putting folded up paper inside, it just sounds too chincy. Aren't there any premade rings or spacers that will perform the same function as the paper trick? Thanks in advance.
