Pickup cover?

Hi guys,

where can I find some pickup covers? Especially for humbuckers??? I've got some Dimarzio pickups that are black and I wanted to swap the cover with white but I don't seem to be able to find them anywhere... any idea?

Thanks

Re: Pickup cover?

do you mean the plastic bobbin covers? or actual metal covers that cover the entire pickup?

DiMarzio's don't have covers. The black plastic is an integral part of the pickup. Your only options are to get white bobbin sticker (on ebay), paint your pickups white, or buy white pickups.

edit: OK, DiMarzios CAN have covers, but not the type I think the OP is asking about...................

Re: Pickup cover?

No--there are plastic covers you can get...just like the metal ones that cover the entire pickup.
