Traditional humbucker cover. Used to finish off and cover up the humbucker bobbins.
Made out of 100% nickel to affect tone as little as possible. Plated in a range of finishes and measurements.
The rule of thumb is that if the string spacing is less than two inches or 50mm, a standard humbucker is a right choice. For string spacings larger than two inches or 50mm, step up to an F-spaced or Trembucker pickup size. Due to the magnetic field created by the polepieces, it’s not absolutely necessary for the strings to pass exactly over the center of the polepieces. However, it’s a good idea to keep the E strings from sitting completely outside of the outer polepieces, as the reduced magnetic force could have a negative impact on your tone.
