    I've seen mother of pearl dots used to cover the holes also.

    Yup. I didn’t know much when I was a kid.

    Mine was a hand-me-down guitar. So that makes sense.

    Worst I have seen was a near mint 1936 Gibson L5 that had been in a guys family for decades. He took it to a local shop and asked them for a pickup that could be put on without changing or hurting the guitar in any way. Left it there after the owner assured the guy he would take extra special care of it.
    I was there when the customer opened the case to see his guitar.
    The man started to cry and become very angry when he saw his family heirloom.

    The shop owner drilled 4 holes in the top of that L5 and screwed on some kinda pickup.

    That was the worst thing I have ever seen, guitar related. I felt so bad for that customer.

    The idiot shop owner was proud of his work and couldn't understand why the customer was mad. He deserved a punch in the nose.

    Glad I work on my own gear.

    I guess that, myself being more of a traditionalist, I never thought of 60.
