26 Ripley1046 4 years ago From the HB P90s I've tried I never noticed a big difference in the covers. FWIW the Mean 90s I have (black) are metal covers, and I don't think it does anything detrimental. Thanks for the info on the Schecter pups. I haven't had much time to do any digging on that guitar since I got it. I do know they made a few limited run goldtops, but from what I understand there are only about 40 of these.
