    Actually there is something worse -- the holes left behind when you take off the pickup covers.

    but you can't see them from stage, so just take the things off if you don't like them. i think they have shielding properties too though...

  13. Apparently the ones on older Rickenbackers had something to do with the tone of the pickup, the covers were also a good chunk of stel or somethign IIRC. New ones are plastic. None the less I will have to go ahead and say that I love the look of them :D on th Rick's especially.

    And i will say that teenage pregnancy as mentioned above would be worse than the pickup covers.

    huh. That last one doesn't make sense, does it? Well, it's about 45 years years old. I may be misremembering. Always seemed meaningful to me though...
