humbucker covers

can i remove my humbucker covers? the guitar is an epiphone SG, if i removed them would they look like a dimarzio? (two single coil shapes together?) and i don't know if they have it but if they have wax on them, do i need to leave it on? if so i probably would remove the covers and what does the wax do?

Re: humbucker covers

Yes you can. De-solder the solder that holds the covers on and lift it off. There are tutorials if you do a google search.
