well, because you have liike a grey collor for hardware, stick with black. its important to have unity with all parts of hardware pups ect, but it isnt important for the colors to match up perfectly with the guitar its self.

I'd put some cream/black zebra style pickups... would look really nice with the amber top of the guitar.

EMG's can be ordered in black, white or ivory btw.......... The white or the ivory would match the color of the sharkfins on the fretboard and binding, and I would put a set of these:

Black, or some shade of gray, but not white. Possibly chrome. Possibly (less likely) gold.

No other color will work without looking weird.
