Re: seeking purple single coil covers for dimarzio / ibz usa
Yah... It's truly a pain in the ass all around, really. The metric vs imperial and the stuff that is off color, won't fit, too big, too small, etc. Pots, knobs, pup rings, shaft sizes, covers, etc etc... been doing this for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time and it's taken a bit to learn what works and what does not. The only covers that work on Dimarzio are Dimarzio covers and sadly, no purp available. I'm going to take a few white dimarzio covers and buy a rattle can of purp from home depot and just paint em myself to try and get 'em close.
It is very unusual though that I've run into several bad Dimarzio pickups lately. I love them very much and am huge on x2n, tz, dact, etc and would never talk sh*t about them, but the last 2 used guitars I've bought, an HSS and an HSH, all 3 humbuckers were bad and would not ohm out. I've only had one bad Duncan and it was an active blackout.
