  1. I just bought two white ones directly from Ernie Ball.

    Correct.
    the old conventional StingRay 4 string pickup cover just slides right off.

  5. Now why the heck would they go and start gluing them on? That just makes it impossible to repair the pickup if there's a simple (by pickup repair-person standards) fix available. Dumb move, EBMM (he says with zero idea of it's true, or why they did it, or if it's actually a dumb move ;-) )

    Pretty reliable pickups. I can't remember any time I've heard of anyone with a dead coil.
     
  7. That's not my point. I know, it sounded like my point. I was just using that as a point to make my point.

    You know...

    My real point is that guitar pickups have had removable covers, or no covers, on decent pickups, basically forever. You can access things in there that might matter to you. 4 string ray pickups have had removable covers forever. Why not 5s? And, why on earth would they START gluing on covers relatively recently in the history of EBMM basses out of the blue? It's extra effort, and makes things less accessible. Why on earth?
