FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Telecasters / Replacing cover on tele neck pickup question

I have a tele neck pickup that came out of my Squier CV 50's Tele which I removed the nickel cover. (they are the Tonerider pups that are OEM for Squier)

If I were to restore the pickup back to "stock" (ie: put the cover back on) would I have to re-place the wax that was inside the cover as well?

Is there any sonic or electronic reason that would necessitate this?

FTR after I removed the cover, I wrapped the coil wire with a cloth tape similar to the ribbon that pickup makers use on open humbuckers.


Maybe this should have gone in the Pup Tent, but it *is* tele-specific...

Thanks

Nah. Get the cover snug by crimping over the three tabs and you should be good.

The original wax fill is not just for the coil wire; it also locks the metal cover in place in relation to the coil.

It prevents the cover from vibrating or resonating independently of the coil and creating feedback.

That's kind of what I thought.

Cheers!

Re-pot it if you get problems with squealing, etc.

Make sure to solder the ground lug too.
