    I hope this is in the right place.

    I have a squier vm Jazz.

    I want to get rid of the pup covers with the "Duncan Designed" emblazened on them.

    So my question is do the pup covers i replace them with have to have the holes for the pole pieces, or can i use the solid fronted ones.
    Will this make any difference to pup performance or tone?

    You can used the closed covers if you like. Some Jazz pickups have the poles sticking up past the cover though, so that might make the cover not fit well. But otherwise it wont change the tone of the pickup.

    Any regular jazz covers should also fit.
