hi Guys,

I want to have a gold cover for my humbucker, but 'worked open', filtertron style. I have absolutely NO idea where to buy that! can anybody help me? those covers are great for prails and stagmag pickups, because the polepieces are fully adjustable with them. and they look cool too...

Orpheo,

you could buy a couple of GFS retrotrons and pull off the covers to use elsewhere.

bit pricy. 30$ for just a cover...

Maybe they don't exist.

Are the real ones the wrong size? They probably are. :icon_scratch:

that is why i suggested buying the retrotrons from GFS..they are stanndard humbucker sized. Im sure you can swing the extra cash.
