I am thinking of getting them put on, would like to see saome of yours.
I love the ashtray look but took them off again - too limiting for my picking hand.
Here is mine
Here's my '74
My '65 Precision...
Some beautiful basses so far, look forward to seeing loads more.
This is mine cij 57 reissue.
Are they worth putting on? Do you have to take the bridge one off every time you want to change strings or the the pickup one off if you want to change the height of the pickup? Seems like they would just get in the way.
There ya go AV '62 from 1997
Pity that this beast sounds best when you pluck above the pickup
Yep, you have to take the bridge one off to swap strings or set the intonation, but it's only two screws...takes maybe 30 seconds to remove it.
And yes, they do get in the way. I remove the pickup cover when playing fingerstyle as it covers up the 'sweet spot'. I like it to be on place when using a pick, though.
It does look nice but if they get in the way and i end up not liking it then i have holes in my bass. Gonna have to give this more thought.
They are if you like the look, and don't get in the way of your playing style.
Yes, you do need to take them off when you need to set your intonation, pickup heights etc, but you shouldn't have to do this very often. The bridge cover will have to come off when you want to change strings.
EDIT: Wow. I was quite slow with my response. Damn.
On the left, obviously. I've tried with the pickup guard as well but it gets in the way too much
The bridge cover however, neatly covers the foam under my strings
Heres my little Precision.I think that Sunburst with full 'coveration' is the canines Cahoonas!!
My '62 Re-Issue w/D'Addario Chromes Flats.
I have that exact same style bass. That looks so good!
With covers since 1963....
