An easy way to measure pole-piece spacing

When you’re shopping for pickup covers it’s essential you know the pole-piece spacing of your pickup.

Measuring centre to centre is hit and miss and it’s easy to be a mm out which can make all the difference!

An idea occurred to me that it doesn’t need to be so hard. Here’s the trick if you have some digital calipers.

First measure a pole piece

Then set the calipers to zero

Finally measure between the outside edges of your pole pieces. This will give you the exact pole piece spacing of your pickup.

Easy!
