Re: New JEM Project
I almost agree with therightjem, but here's my 2 cents...
1) Black hardware. It will make the swirl stand out more.
2) Absolutely not.
3) If you decide to do pickup rings, do black. If at all possible, I would suggest you not use them.
4) Red and black would be good options, possibly yellow.
5) Dimarzio FS-1. Awesome high powered single that has a very small amount of hum that works beautifully with high powered humbuckers, especially in split.
Make that swirl stand out. It is really gorgeous. Don't detract too much from it with gaudy hardware or crazy colored pickups. Let the eyes grab the lines and colors of that swirl, not the accessories.
