New pups! Black, creme or zebra?

Since this is a design question i post it here and not under pickups & wiring.

Will change pups in my S2170SE and since the body and neck has creme bindings then maybe some creme on the pups can work!?

Looks like this today


And here are som photoshoped alternatives.

Zebra 1


Zebra 2


Zebra 3


All creme


Wich one would you prefer? Maybe i should stick to all black like it is now!?

Personally, i like it the way it is!! Thats a beautiful finish on the guitar the way it is, and i feel creme or zebra would distract the eye from the beauty that it has!!! Its so awesome dude!!! What pups you got in mind?

I will probably go for Dimarzio Evo 2 in bridge, HS-2 in the middle and Air Norton in neck position. It's a gamble, i have never tried those pups in an s-model but i think it will work fine.

They all work very well but if I had to choose then I'd plump for Zebra 3.

Zebra 1 gets my vote, though most of my guitars are similarly equipped as I appear to have a peculiar fetish for that particular scheme. I think it looks classy.

Re: New pups! Black, creme or zebra?

I recently changed pups on my guitar. I was going for zebra 2, but was sent pups with reversed bobbin colors. so now its more like zebra 1.

and its growing on me. dont see that combo often. I think i'm gonna keep it as is.

here's a pic

Re: New pups! Black, creme or zebra?

Zebra 1 somewhat works...
All Cream or All White (to compliment the binding + tuners)

Oh ya, I had an AN in my S540 a while ago and it was very nasally... kinda like talking while holding your nose.

Any of the Zebras are the way to go.

Did you have the air norton in bridge or neck position? As i understand it the air norton should be very versatile!? I'm also considering the evolution or the paf pro for the neck position. Any thoughts on that?

Had the AN in the neck position with the screw poles facing the neck. It's a versatile pup but did not like how it sound on my axe... *maybe* AN's sound better in RG style guitars?
Can't really go wrong with a Paf Pro in the neck and Evo's end up sounding better in mahogany.
