PUP covers made out of pickguard?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by jazzy bass man, Dec 27, 2005.

  1. I was thinking of getting a tort pickguard for my black MIM p-bass.
    Black + Tort is amazing looking in my opinion. :hyper:
    I was wondering if anyone had ever saved the excess pickguard material, which was cut out for the pups, and put it on top of the pups themselves to be covers.

    Would this change anything, such as interfering with the signal of the pups?

    Any info / thoughts are appreciated.

    Thanks :)

    EDIT: just realized this may be in the wrong forum, if it is please move it.

    I have actually seen tortoise pickups before, Rio Grande makes them. They are have exposed pole pieces though, but I doubt it would cause any issues if the poles weren't exposed.
