So I am in the middle of modifying a bass for a friend of mine. I removed the finish, reshaped it and vacuum bagged a figured veneer over the face to give it a little zazz. In the process I kept the cutouts for the pickups and dyed them along with the body. I know some builders build pickup caps and Ive had some experience with that but Ive also seen some adhere a veneer to the face of the pickup. The pickups for this bass are stock, 5 string, de armond pickups with no exposed pole pieces. So here are my questions: Could I sand the face a little and epoxy the veneer sets onto the pickups or is the normal process more involved? I know that wood generally wont mess with the magnetic field but I just wanted to make sure, would epoxy + veneer somehow change the characteristics of the pickup/sound?
