Wooden pup casings Pros and cons

  1. I just think they're too tacky for my taste. Is there any other reason i should think of them better than metal hardware?

    Because you like them.. or if you're a builder, because your customer likes them. Otherwise use what you want.

    There is no functional difference. So, it is just a matter of taste. As it turns out, wooden pup covers are a hot item right now. Personally, I think they add a nice touch. I don't think we will see mass produced instruments with wooden covers, but the smaller custom builders seem to be creating quite a few basses with carved covers.
