I know its for a guitar and this is talkbass, but this is gonna be my project for the next few months. I want to use Gibson pickups, specifically the 496r neck pickup and the 500t bridge pickup. These pickups are meant to mount under a pickguard and are not in a cover. I want to put them into a solid body guitar. My question is if I use wooden pickup covers will I distort the tone? Should I drill holes for the magnets to show through?
