RG3EX1, very nice quilt top! What pickups would look good in this?

So I've had this RG3EX1 for a while now, and it's been gutted of the electronics for a couple weeks. I have stalled and am trying to make up my mind what pickups style would look best in the body. I'm deciding between a pair of EMGs, or a Dimarzio Air Norton and Tone Zone/or D-sonic combo. I'm asking what pair of pickups you guys think LOOKS best, I'll worry about the sound.

I realize after looking around that I ended up with a really nice maple top on the body. It has very big grain and a lot of depth to it. I just wanted to show the guitar and see what you guys think about pickups. Thanks.

Great guitar! Here's mine with a Tone Zone and a PAF Pro. This guitar sounds great with a TZ!

Yeah, either that, or a full black, which could be kinda boring...
