It sh*ts me. And it looks terrible.

Is it permanently printed on the pickup or is it like a sticker you can remove?

When did they start doing this? Its honestly one of the reasons I've never bought a new SD pup. I don't want my guitar covered in advertising. DiMarzio has started doing it too.

Can you remove the label?

It's very easy to remove.
Some rubbing with fine sandpaper or steel wool and off it goes.

I don't like names on them at all. Bought some used Custom Shop SD pups just to avoid it.

Mr. Clean magic eraser very easily removes it. Grab one next time you go grocery shopping.

Yes I think its ugly, too.

They can also be ordered with or without the logo. There are several logos, as well. I've heard Brasso works, too.

I've had luck with Mother Aluminum Mag polish, a q-tip, a little elbow grease, and some patience.

Looks like there's has been a new logo on a few of the newer offerings. There are some that might suggest it's another step in diminishing Seymour from "Seymour Duncan".

I'm with the no-logo crowd.

Nah, the logo is their standard 'S' with the dots, with stands for Seymour. They also use a log that is sort of a metal olde english font, too. I would love comic sans! :)

but... I was referring more to this change (on bottom), which happened in 2013.

I seem to remember it was the company's own customers that pointed it out and were making that "diminshed" observation.

I have a Duncan vintage stack in the bridge of my Telecaster. I painted the top of it with flat black model paint.

Krylon Fusion works too.

The middle pickup cover used to be black with the logo. Now it's a burgundy that's close to that of the unobtainium 80s style cover.

No problem with the logo: all my p'ups have covers. And not all are SD.

I have some Probuckers, an Electric City Pickups Freedom set and some self-wound, self-made.

See? No logo problem! ;)
