I haven't read this whole giant thread so I apologize if this has been answered already, but I want to install nickel humbucker pickup covers on my new SE Custom 24. I've seen several pictures of others like this and it looks SWEET. I know several people on this site have done this to theirs. Therefore, I have questions. Where did you get them? (website) Were there any issue with installation I should know about? Would the ones in this link fit? --- http://www.stewmac.com/Pickups_and_...Parts/Humbucker/Humbucking_Pickup_Covers.html
The one wonky thing to keep in mind about putting covers on SE pickups is that the string spacings are different -- the neck pickup has a 50mm spacing, but the bridge pickup has a 52mm spacing.
FWIW, I got the covers I put on my SE Cu24's pickups from Philadelphia Luthier Supply via eBay.
