My origional title was Magma, since its a little different from the Lava colors of 2008. So ill call it that from now on as to not confuse anyone.

Re: OMG OMC

Just got this back from Dimarzio....

We get about one request per year for orange, so no, we would not consider it.

Okay.



Given enough want, would Dimarzio consider it?


Yes, but orange is not available. The only available colors are those shown at the Color button. Some players have reported success using a white pickup and spray-painting it with Krylon Fusion paint, which is supposed to stick to plastics. If you try it, do not use steel wool on the pickup.

Does dimarzio do custom pickups? Mainly in the form or orange colors?
