My Ideal Universe - Perhaps?

This is only a photoshop 5.5 made guitar, although it could be a future design I would do if I ever own one. I was wondering what if the 2000 model BK's had the green pickups and black pickup guard of the original 91 universe. I apologize for desecrating a beautiful guitar by adding green to it but i just have a fancy for green pickups surrounded in black Plus I'm finding the black and chrome combination to be dull, sporty perhaps and didn't give the same impact the original universes had. The abalone sides will not be painted over of course!
The paint job would be marbelized similarly, but not necessarily the same exact detail.
What do ya guys think?

I love the design on the body but the green pickups somehow look a bit out of place for me. I think that it's a matter of individual taste. It's definitely more rad than your run in the mill UV777BK

Are you kidding!!! Green pickups never look out of place.:biggrin: As an added note please everyone keep hating the uv7bk w/green pickups, so I can find one cheap(I wanna buy one within the next year).
