Custom Colour RG Options

Guys, I would like to upgrade my RG570 with a new paint job. I'm pretty sure the look I want, but a bit of advice always(?) helps!
I'm going for a design like the art of Piet Mondrian (or the Studio Line range of '80s hair products by l'Oreal as my friend pointed out!)
Here's the artwork:

This is my first cut...

that's the easiest option as it uses the stock parts, but...
Maybe white pickups would look better?

Hmmm... or even coloured ones?

Of course I could dispense with the pickup rings, or even paint them!
I was probably going to paint the stock pickups so colour combinations won't be a problem!

I like the black pickups, blends well with the design without being too flashy.

Re: Custom Colour RG Options

I really like it with the white pickups. Are you gonna go the full way (primer, sanding, spray, lacquer)?

Don't forget the pictures once it's finished...

Re: Custom Colour RG Options

I'd go:

1. white headstock, black logo;
2. direct mount pickups
3. pickup coils in the following color (bridge to neck) white/black/white/white/red

Give it a try on the V-RG!

P.S.: Maple board?

Re: Custom Colour RG Options

I like the maple on white. Classy. But the color scheme reminds me too much of the Partridge Family bus

Re: Custom Colour RG Options

I like it.

How about random block inlays of various colours on the board?

I think I love it
so what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid I'm no so sure of
a guitar that looks so Partridge


sorry, that was stupid, and please don't ask me why I know those lyrics well enough to make a parody of them...

It's too bad that design has to be associated with the Patridge Family, it's a pretty cool looking guitar design.

Re: Custom Colour RG Options

See! this is why you ask these questions!
I do like the maple option and the coloured block inlays! However at the moment I'm restricting myself to just a respray (and pickups/covers) and I'll worry about the neck later but good food for thought! thanks,
Jim
