    I changed the bridge and tailpieces on my 339 HB Pro and P90 Pro to a black Gotoh set. I now have the urge to remove the covers from the humbuckers and was wondering if they are wax potted and is it much of a hassle to clean them up. I don't want to swap out the pickups at this time.

    Thanks.

    Yes they are wax potted... pretty heavily too if they are anything like the Epi pickups I've taken the covers off. That said, cleaning them up isn't a big deal.

    Yeah, there are pics scattered about on this forum which show exactly how much they are potted, which is extremely.

    They look like wax bricks, and when all the excess wax is removed those who've done it said it opened up the tone.
