    I'm considering upgrading my pickups, but I'm not sure whether to go with nickel, chrome, or open bobbins (black, cream, zebra).

    Mine came with the chrome you see here but if I had my choice it would be nickel.

    Terrible picture, but here is the '94 Standard on the right. The black one is an '08 Trad.

    It looks like most prefer covers instead of open coils.

    1971 Deluxe with mini hums and goof rings. Just ran outside and snapped a picture of this one for someone else, then saw this thread. I have five CSB LPs, I'll post the others later on.

    Overlook the dust and uncut strings, the poor thing has just been hanging out since I got it back from a friend of mine. (It's not really this red in person, and the checking on it is really nice.)
