I want some nice nickel pickup covers from here... Axesrus - Pickup covers, Humbucker Covers and Mounting Rings.

as Gibson charge a stupid £20 per cover and these are only £4. But is it 50 or 52mm spacing from E to e... Im not sure if I measure from the middle or the back or front of the pole piece? Its for a standard faded and Classic antique LP. I know the Gibson cover is part number PRPC 30, if thats any good.

I make it 50mm from the front of the E to the back of the e...

Looks like it's 50mm.
You measure from the middle of the low E pole piece to the middle of the high E pole piece.

Or from left edge to left edge (or right to right). Same distance and much easier to measure exactly than dead center on the heads.

Well, Jimbo's question has been answered, I'm sure he doesn't mind us derailing the thread a little. :D

I'm sure my English is already bastardized enough. I've watched far too many American movies and TV series in English for it not to be.
I've seen Lost, Weeds, Supernatural and Two And A Half Men completely in English, for example, plus far too many movies to list.
It's just that I write different than I speak, same as in German.
If I would've "said" it, it would've been more like "true dat". :thumb:
