Jol at Guitar Guru Uncovers Pickup Cover Removal History


Hamer founder Jol Dantzig recently blogged a little historical documentary piece, on why we started pulling the covers off our humbuckers. A legendary guitarist is responsible, but you'll need to visit Jol's Guitar Guru blog to find out just who that is.

When I was a high school junior, my first decent guitar was a '76 Fender Mustang, that I bought new. The first thing I did was remove those cheesy plastic pickup covers. Then I got a '78 Ibanez PF200 (Les Paul copy), and removed those pickup covers ASAP (any guesses on how old I might be?).

This was a very important thing to do. So stop by Guitar Guru for the full scoop!
