Score! Swirled RG7621!

This thing looks beautiful. Just bought it off of a guy on sevenstring.org, has a Blaze Custom in the bridge. Now, seeing as how it's swirled, I was thinking of putting in somewhat matching pickups, but couldn't decide on which, so I thought I'd ask for advice.

White/White bridge and neck.
Creme/Creme bridge and neck.
White/Black zebra striped bridge and neck.
Creme/Black zebra bridge and neck.

Those are the main ones I'm deciding on, though the idea of one solid white or creme in the bridge and one solid black neck (and reverse) is also appealing.

So hard to decide!

that things killer, man. I'd either leave the black or go white/black Zebras, not cream though.

I was leaning to white/black zebra pickups, yeah. I'd also like to get white tuners for the thing, just for some contrast on the headstock to match the body contrast of white/black.

Black/white is a good choice over cream/black, but resist the urge for white tuners.

I'd stay away from white tuners, it'd look cheap.

Re: Score! Swirled RG7621!

Looking great..
Considering the PUs..maybe you should leave them as they are..so that there is a contrast..
Considering the contrast on the headstock, i would do something with the truss rod cover..try white, or ad some white detail on it..it will look mch better in my opinion..
