    Hello - trying to determine if I remove the covers on my 57/08 pickups, if they will have the square bobbin look that I'm after. Does anyone know?

    Thank you!

    No, they will not. Normal round bobbins under covers.

    AFAIK squabbins won't fit under any cover. So any covered humbucker will have rounded bobbins.
