I'd leave everything black as is but install these around the humbuckers, and use chrome dome knobs. Would look tight.
true but i can't think of any that wouldn't look obnoxious besides those.Pickups come in more colors than black, white and cream.
i have to change the pickups in my other charvel to a SD JB/Jazz anyway and was planning to put a Jazz in this one, so i might as well rip out the JB in this one and put it in my other charvel, then buy a white/zebra JB/jazz for this one and a black jazz for my other guitar, then sell the 59n this black one came with and the pickups that are currently in my other charvel.I would either leave it alone or put some nice stickers on it ... I think most people here don't like stickers on their guitars but that guitar is calling for them ... if you like stickers ..... do you like stickers? they are inexpensive, colorful, and cheerful
if you like the sound of the pickups as they are would you really change them just because they're black? .... I thin many people would say they think the guitar looks good the way it is .......
black guitars are classic af ain't no denying
My thoughts... Keep it original and color it with Arpeggiated Ballads.. Im a southpaw also, and very picky... especially when playing Heartbreak Station...I bought this guitar because it fits my spec and was really cheap in mint condition, i'm a lefty so i really can't be picky about color, but the black on black just looks so bland.
any suggestions to cheer it up? i was thinking i could put white pickups in it instead and put these pickups in my other natural finish mahogany charvel which i was gonna put a JB trembucker in anyway.
maybe you guys have some other cool ideas? i had thought about having the paint stripped professionally but that would probably be really costy...
