Pimp my RG550

Ok so its the black maple/maple variety that you see everyday; but i wanna change the pups/knobs/tip but cant decide which color to go with due the maple fretboard..

any ideas?

green-on-black seems a popular choice.

If you cover the white/silver headstock logo with a green one, then change the pickups/controls to grennit's a classic look imho.

Throw in red humbuckers, white single coil and white knobs. That would kill. The green on black has become too popular. Do something different

I'm kinda liking this suggestion except how about a diablo swirl pickguard to go with it.

Re: Pimp my RG550

*Green pickups
*Green knobs and switch tip
*3-ply pickguard in black/green/black so you just see the pinstripe outline
*Replace dots on neck with green ones,
*Green Ibanez logo

Replace Green with any colour you want.
