Just an FYI to check these guys out if you're hunting for pickups. So sometime in the last year I followed a bunch of discussions about pickups that sound great and don't bust the bank. Inevitably I was directed to the Donlis Musical Instruments company storefront on AliExpress. I bought a bunch of pickups for not a lot of money (on three separate occasions) and was happy with each one. At one point I bought a set of covered A5 humbuckers, which are great but they have brass chromed covers and nickel silver would interfere less. When I asked Donlis if they had some, nickel silver covers that would fit the pickups, they said yes (just not in the catalogue) and sure enough I got a set of covers. They are now a regularly stocked item: https://www.aliexpress.com/store/pr...PAF-lp-guitar-pickups/204043_32664908753.html Now, it seems they've gone a step further and have more options in their covered humbuckers. They have options for nickel silver baseplate and nickel silver covers and the prices are still well below what we are used to for the level of quality we've been seeing: https://www.aliexpress.com/store/group/LP-pickups/204043_260314318.html I just happened to visit their storefront this evening while looking for other things and saw these so I haven't auditioned these new nickel silver covered pickups but I do have a set of their A5 covered and set of A2 uncovered humbuckers; I am more than happy with them.
