What is the difference b/w capped and uncapped PUPS?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Gandolf Bassist, May 28, 2001.


  1. Hey everybody. On of my friends who plays in a band told me that I should cap the PUPS on my Ibanez GSR-200. It has a P/J configuration and I was just wondering what purpose would it serve to have them capped? I know this is probably a stupid question for most of you and I apologize but I wanted to know. Thanx in advance for any response.
    O and sorry if I didnt use correct terminology.

    If you're inquiring as to the difference between exposed polepieces and covered polepieces, the answer is that there is none.
