Post by specitim » 08 Nov 2018, 12:07

Anyone know where to get wooden pickup covers made or anyone who sells them?

Yes but I don’t have contact details. Melbourne Pickups can probably sort you out as he makes custom stuff and works out of the same shop where David and Rob run the Melbourne School of Guitar Making. Hopefully one of the guys will chime in with phone numbers or give the MSGM a holler.

+1 for Colin at Melbourne pickups, or David and Rob from MSGM. No numbers on me right now. Easy to look up on the net though.

Actually... ebay. They say rose wood, but I doubt it.

I totally second (or now third) Colin and/or David and Rob. See the experts.
I'm decidedly non-expert wrt pickup covers since I haven't attempted those yet. And decidedly not "can make anything" (except if you talk about errors ;) ).

Regards,
Michael
