    Default Covered (Nickel) Pickup vs Non-Covered?

    Is there a known sound difference? Pros & Cons to leave it on vs. removing it? I have a JB in my Les Paul that has a nickel cover. If I'm convinced to remove the nickel cover, am I going to have a pickup covered in a wax mess?? How to go about cleaning it up?

    Thanks
    Chris

    to be honest with ya, i dont think there is much tone difference, either way its a humbucker. and with the wax, it will probally be a bit glossy like, if it were me, i would just leave that p/up the way it is.
