RG1527 with white pups and knobs?

Hey guys

I just got a brand new Ibanez RG1527 in royal blue (looks awesome!!!!) and in the near future im going to replace the pickups with probably a Blaze custom or Blaze bridge model in the bridge and either an Air Norton or Blaze Neck in the neck, and i heard that royal blue paint with white pups and knobs looks awesome so have any of you guys done it? what do you think? pics?

Also what do you guys think of those pups? Im looking for the sound on Dream Theaters 'Train of Thought'
Bridge: Blaze custom or Blaze Bridge
Neck: Blaze Neck or Air Norton

Re: RG1527 with white pups and knobs?

I'd say the look as it is (that means black pups and knobs). But it's ultimately your choice. If you want a DT tone, I'd suggest an AN7 in the neck and a Blaze in the bridge (since it's almost similar to the Steve's Special).

Caprile also did this with his RG1077XL a while ago, here's a pic:

Scratch what I said before. White would look nice on a 1570 after seeing that 1077XL. I would suggest to keep the stock knobs, though.

Thanks man the royal blue looks awesome on my RG1527 but damn it looks sweet on your RG1077XL.

Ive managed to stockpile a few more images from jemsite and sevenstring so ill popst the link to my photobucket:

http://photobucket.com/albums/c202/I...anez%20RG1527/

Some of these photos are of your 1077 Teof so if you'd like me to take them down pm me and ill do it straight away.

I think im gonna go with white pups and white knobs afterall! Capprielles looks so classy.But i still cant decide on what pickups though. Oh well, i dont get it till christmas anyway since my parents paid part of it

Re: RG1527 with white pups and knobs?

Oh yes...do remember that the colours of the pickup poles do matter if you are changing to new pickups. For me, I really dig the black hex poles, cos they really contrast well with white. You can probably see the difference if you take a look at Capprielles' 1077 pickups.

No problem at all. One thing to note man (Sorry that I'm getting alittle naggy heh), I notice that the new 7 string toppers I got is of glossy finish. The previous 6 string toppers I got was none gloss which I kinda prefer. I think their materials are different too. You should check it out with brian from universaljems. Do me a favour me man, let me know the outcome abt this one and if it's still possible to purchase the non gloss toppers :P Thanks!

Haha no worries mate. Quick question, the bobbin toppers you got, you got them from universal jems right? and are they the sticker type or the hard plastic cap type? from the pics they looks like the sticker type but i cant be sure. i didnt think the sticker type ones were made in an matt (non gloss)?

Yup they are sticker type. I got them from universal jems. Erm...I'm not too sure if there are hard plastic cap type around. The sticker type is definitely fantastic. Yup..there are matt ones. In fact I think the matt ones looks better, they look more natural and stick better than my current glossy ones.
