How can I remove the treble pickup cover from my 4003?
It is possible to remove the treble pickup cover without too much trouble.

You will first need to remove the strings from your instrument. Next you can unscrew the four mounting screws that hold the pickup in place. You will then be able to pull the entire assembly out of its cavity.

You may wish to note at this time how the parts are arranged so that you will be able to put them back together with a minimal amount of trouble. Unscrew and remove the two height adjustment screws (the springs may spring loose, so make sure you don't lose track of them), take out the cover, and reassemble the pickup.

After removing the cover, you may notice some additional hum, as the cover does provide extra shielding.
