Rickenbacker treble cover
(I'm assuming that this is the right forum, since this isn't actually about the pickups; apologies if that's not right.)
I see that removal of the treble pickup cover on the Rickenbacker 4003, 4001, and similar is a thing. Conversely, I see that Lemmy had them install a 4003 pickup cover on his 4004LK to use as a handrest. Is it a pick style vs. finger style thing? What are the advantages either way?
