    I voted to take 'em off. I'm not a big fan of covers. I don't enjoy my sweat tarnishing the covers and don't like polishing them. I also prefer my bridge humbuckers uncovered because they sound more, well..."open". Totally a personal preference though.

    Sweet guitar with a nice history.
    Note the date and time in the official logbook - I agree with Blackbird....

    though, I'm usually a covers on guy.

    imho, keeping the covers on makes it look classier and a lot better. But eschewing covers and showing those naked bobbins is my kinda stuff Plus the newer PRS pickups come with squabbins, so no complains about dust getting in haha

    SWEET guitar! I think it looks great as is. But if she were mine, I'd yank the covers and do the "blackout" routine. Black rings and knobs fo sho!.

    Thanks for all the replies everyone! "Keep" the covers outnumbers by a 2-1 margin. I was leaning that way anyway. I love open pickups but I am also a sucker for chrome on black. If the covers ever tarnish and start to look bad maybe I will yank them but since this guitar was owned and played by Howard Leese, I think I will keep it as is in honor of him!
