Well the Carvin is all done... Now what :)

Well I did as much to her as I can with out serious modifications..

New pickups, new knobs, switchtip, and strap...

Not to shabby for a guitar almost 15 years old..

Re: Well the Carvin is all done... Now what :)

Why not find another pair of ring, and PAINT them white, to match? I've done that, before, with pickup bobbins, where I had a great pickup, but it was in black, and I needed white. I've had pretty good success with the Krylon Fusions, as they work on plastic, but I usually find myself topcoating it, as it has a different formula, and tends to be a tad soft, and collect dirt, by itself.

Re: Well the Carvin is all done... Now what :)

up on projectguitar.com, there was a guy who spray painted all his hardware white, and his guitar had a blue paint job.

But i dunno about spraying the bridge. Might mess up all the small screws and stuff...

You can find white plastic rings... a lot of online shops sell them.

Hey Ibanezcollector, was there any problems with switching out the pickups to fit correctly? I've read on some other threads that there is a mod you have to do. Is this true or did new pickups fit good? TUGGEY

new pickups fit just fine, I had to buy new rings cause Carvins(least mine) used two screws on each side of the pickup to lower and raise it.

But no mods were needed.

Also I searched high and low for white pickup rings but found nothing, I tried stewmac, allparts, evilbay, everywhere.

The picture didn't load, but are you after white pickup rings or tan? If I remember correctly which I probably don't you had tan pups. I have some tan rings if you want them that the previous owner had put on my Carvin but included the original black ones so I put them back on.
