replacing tele pickup cover


Junior Member
I am about to replace original chrome cover with a gold one. Seems like i have to desolder one of the wires attached to a pin on the edge of the cover before removing it. Is there any other trick or danger with that?
there is one wire connected to the cover.  disconnect it at the cover end.  take the tabs that hold the cover on and straighten em.  take off the cover.  put on the new cover, folding the tabs to hold it.  solder the wire to the new cover.  its about as easy-peasy as it gets.
Thanks CB. That's exacly what i meant. But it's always better to ask someone who's got some experience. Wouldn't like to damage a brand new pickup.
