    Looking for strat pickup cover supplier

    Does anyone know where to get 52mm strat single coil covers in bulk? Of course cheaper the better.

    The only cheap way is China. And those are the same covers you're likely buying through a state-side reseller.

    Good luck with that ,i have hundreds of covers here from china that don't fit American spec flatwork or just too cheap quality .just a little too tight to sit as it should causing the pickup to be slightly tilted .
    Also it's a common thing the cheap Asian pickups have 3 different pickup spacing per pickup set . not all wide spacing like the North American pickups .
    there is also 52mm & 52.5mm spacing for strat covers . I won't get into covers too thin that you can see the dark flatwork starting to show through .....you have to paint the insides of them to be able to use them .

    Aliexpress. I've bought hundreds, no problems with fit or finish on any flatwork I've bought(addiction fx).
