Help me decide...

This guitar o'mine...



...needs love. It's getting new pickups in the near future (Steve's Special, Chopper), but it needs something else...

At first, I was thinking something like this...



...green pickups, knobs, etc... It'd be pretty unique IMO.

Then, I found this JPM graphic set...



...in white for $22 on Universaljems.com. This has a distinct visual hiccup though, as the pickup configuration on the guitar it would be going on is different.

So what do you think? Green, or graphic?

Re: Help me decide...

well, the green is a different pickup layout mate, the JP graphic is a cut-to-suit job so it dont matter where your pups are... BUT !!

I say green, but then... I would, wouldnt I

Obviously

I meant the overall theme of that guitar. Black body with Green knobs/pickups. I haven't been able to find a green 3-way knob, but the switch is probably going to be replaced with a DiMarzio EP1111 so I'm kind of stuck with it being silver anyway.

Re: Help me decide...

I thought about that, you don't think it'd be a bit much?
