    Regardless of the mounting style (dogear vs soapbar) is the pickup inside the same shape / interchangeable between the two types of cover?

    Cheers

    The same bobbin is used for soapbar and dogear so the covers are interchangeable. Now that being said maybe some manufacturers pole spacing may be off.

    Pole spacing can vary from 48-50mm but the bobbins are the same.
    A dog ear will have mounting tabs on the sides where a Soapbar will not.
