What fretboard are you going to use with it? and do you want to go darker or lighter with your colour scheme?

My vote would be to go for pink or green, the swirl is quite intense and dark so these brighter colours which are less prevalent in the swirl would balance it out a bit

I found a set that has a green cap and a black cap in the humbucker. I might go with those. I'd probably stick with the green for the volume and tone knobs, and the pickup selector as well. I have a 7 string Ibanez 7620 that I'm going to use as a parts guitar. Rosewood neck.

I think pink would look great against that swirl.

Green and black Dimarzio's.

To be honest: Imo that one of Herc's weakest swirls from the last years. It looks like the swirl is like a waterfall.

This way, neck to bridge:
Purple/green - Purple - Green/purple

Or just purple!
