Ideas Needed For Customizing RG550

I'm new to the site and I have to say I've spent a lot of time reading all
the posts and have found it to be very informing.

My question is: I have a 1988 RG550 Road Flare Red w/matching headstock. I need to redo the pickguard and pickups but I can't seem.
to come up with something that would look cool. Could someone help me out with some cool color combinations?

somwhere on the home page of Jemsite is a place you can view virtual Jems drawn by "The Loop". there are tons of ideas there. you can also check in threads posted under jems or other guitars to see some of the stuff people here have done. don't forget to also check LGM and ATD for some of their ideas.
keep us posted

I'll have to search the other forums and check out the sites you listed.
I've search the forums and I can find tons and tons of info on just the rg550. So much info so little time.

What do you think this would look like?

Mirror pickguard and truss rod plate
Violet Dimarzio pickups and knobs
