Color Guide (not all finishes are available)
Gold - The exact color of gold can vary from batch to batch. Is not uncommon to find gold plating that ranges from an orange to a light yellow. Our gold pickup covers will be in the middle of the tint range.
Black - Typically has oil or silicone applied to get the smooth black finish found on black plated parts. When not oiled, it will appear to have a matte finish.
Chrome - Chrome can be identified as having a slightly blue tint when compared to nickel plating. Chrome is a very durable finish and is the most common color used for hardware except for old vintage instruments.
Nickel (plating) - Nickel when compared to chrome will have a slight yellowish tint. A softer finish than chrome and show age early with heavy use.
Black Chrome (similar to Cosmo Black, Black Nickel, Smoked Black Nickel, Ruthenium, etc) - This is a very interesting color. It is a very hard finish to take a picture of because of the way it reflects light. It can sometimes appear lighter or darker depending on the surroundings. Compared to Black, it is not nearly as dark and very glossy(reflective). Used on a lot of superstrat hardware from companies like Ibanez.
Pearl Chrome - Pearl Chrome is another black finish but is very light compared to Black Chrome. It is almost like a slightly tinted black chrome.
Raw (No Plating) - This is truly an unfinished pickup cover. It is a pickup cover without any processing done so it can show light scuffing, scratching, and oil from the manufacturing process. The look of raw covers can easily be changed by sanding to create a brushed look or light polishing to make them appear aged. Many will use also use them as is.

Great pickup cover. Excellent quality.
I had wanted to try converting the covers and baseplates of several of my pickups to nickel silver for some time. If you are not aware, this can be a major headache. There is a mind-boggling number of different humbucker string spacings used in the modern guitar world. The cool part is that I learned a lot of what I needed to know from reading this site. I am working on an Epi and this site was the only one I found that carried the weird 50/52 mm spacing used on its' MIC pickups (at least at this price point). Truthfully, I haven't really looked at a lot else other than pickup parts yet but if the rest of their stuff is as good and affordable, I'll be ordering again. Thanks, Will
