    I like them both covered...for that nice finished look.
    But each to their own

    I like them both uncovered...for that raw lifted skirt look.
    But each to their own.:sneaky:

    Now I need to find out how much wax is in there, if I decide to remove the covers. I’m guessing it’ll be messy

    I like the last picture of one covered and one open. Makes for a nice contrast.

    Im partial to covers but have yet to buy any for my les paul. I tend to like them all honestly. From open to zebra to covered. But covered looks more fancy, uncovered more stealth and zebra goes well in partscasters. But what ever lifts your skirt is really whats important.

    I only like covered buckers.

    Uncovered just looks scruffy to me, or unfinished. Like when people used to take their hubcaps off, always hated that.

    Both covered is boring! You get that on every LP, SG and whatnot out there. Uncovered, with these silver rings, they look unique.
