Dimarzio Colored Pics In RG's

I finally decided on a pickup combo for my RG570. (Damm Dimarzio for having so many good pickups, I'd need 10 guitars to do all the combos I want).

I went with Breed in the bridge, Fast Trak 1 in the mid, and a Paf Joe in the neck. I wanted "smooth power". The Humbuckers are black on the lower coil and Green on the top coil. It's a metallic black color RG570. I wanted a bit of the 80's shred look.

Anyone got pics of their RG with colored pups? I'll try to get mine up when it's finished.

My blue pickups are actually more blue than they are in the pictures, I just realized that they're kinda green.

I like the looks of the blue pickups, Gex.

Toshiro, purple looks good in that guitar. Nice job.

Me, I like white and cream colored pickups.

Barbie was an RG270BK, pickups are DiMarzio Norton (b) and DiMarzio PAF (n). Chiquita's got a pair of DiMarzio Tone Zones.
they'll be pictured soon on ibanez87.it.

It's an RG750, SN# calls it an '88(it's on the neckplate too, no F- prefix), in the supposed Violet Pearl finish that has no Violet.

(Side note: in the 1989 catalog a very violet/pink colored guitar was named Heather Pearl, IMO it's a typo and this should be Heather Pearl, since it's like grey. lol SO I usually call this guitar Heather grey)

Anyways, those are both Breeds, knobs/switch-tip are Dimarzio, Pickguard is from Jeannie's.

I left out the other customised RG because I thought white wasn't a color.
Just for fun here's the other one:


Talk about mods, this was an RG760(HSS rear routed) that I cut up a lot. Pickguard/trussrod cover are from EKG, Breed neck, blue velvet, Super3. This, funnily enough, is the backup guitar. lol I sold my Metal-flake RG570 to buy/build/butcher this.
