Looking to customize my RG(PICS!!!)

I have a Ibanez RG3EX1QM in heritage cherry sunburst and I want customize it as little as possible without shredding it.

The photo with the 2 humbuckers and dome knobs is the original and what im wanting to mod.

The 2nd photo is the aftermath of what I gonna do.

These are pics of a actual replica of my guitar before and after. I have not done the mods yet. I want all of your opinions and inputs.

The pickups are going to be a FRED in the bridge, a HS-2 in the middle, and a PAF Pro in the neck. Probably not going to upgrade tuners cause I think they're pretty good.

I want your inputs!!!!!!!!

Re: Looking to customize my RG(PICS!!!)

In my opinion there will be too much red after the mod , but thats just me.

Why do you want to mod it? Do you just want more versitile tone? or you don't like the black pickups? or something else

It'd be a bit of work routing out the single coil cavity, but if you are going to do that may i suggest maybe a black single coil to break up the red abit

I'd actually keep it H-H and put in black/creme Zebra pickups.

I dislike the knobs that you want to put on there. Too big and gaudy, they end up drawing the eye directly to them, instead of passing over them and letting the viewer think, "nice touch".

Colour choice is all personal preference though.
