RE: JEM70SFG Multi-Color Pup Options?

Looking at my Jem today and pondered what multi-color pickup would look cool against the seafoam green.

Now mind you, I'm no art student, but from what I understand, if you look at a color wheel, the color opposite "Y" the base/root color should work.

Orange and Red purple color look to be there - not really sure how that would fly. (Heck - not even sure DiMarzio would have that as a color option)

Thoughts?

I think it would be tough to find a color that would look good, but this is a cool option, and a lot cheaper than new pickups:

Or maybe black pickups?

A mirror pickguard may look cool too

Re: JEM70SFG Multi-Color Pup Options?

I had a playaround with one of those mock-up software things that used to be floating around the net, the only colour scheme I liked more than the original was to add black pickups to the guitar instead of white.

It made it look like one of Billy Sheehan's basses, but in itself, that's pretty cool!

Swapping out the black pole pieces with chrome over the upcoming holiday break - I'll post some pics.

I've got Mint Green Knobs, Switch tip & Single Coil cover on my SFG. So, I'd have to have Mint Green humbuckers to complete the look. It's pretty subtle but I like it.
