    Try it and see, though I doubt you'll notice anything. I mean, they put wood covers on them and all now. I say, go for it :D.

    wont make any difference unless the stickers are made of a magnetic material (iron, steel, nickel), or they're so thick that you have to move your pickup further away from strings. Neither situation is likely, so go for it.

    It should not affect your pickups AT ALL.

    I've seen some people duct tape their pickups, why!?

    'Cause everybody knows that duct tape on pickups makes them sound better. :smug:

    Yeah - but the "Duck" brand duct tape sounds the best. Warm and punchy!! :p
