Question Pickups: HS3 w/ToneZone & AirNorton? WHITE, CREAM OR BLUE?! in RG9570

I've just scored an absolutely stunning (imho) JCustom RG9570 from a fellow Jemsiter (big thanks dude!)

Now I'm thinking of putting in some white, cream or maybe blue pickups into this beauty. I love the ToneZone and AirNorton combination but hate the BlueVelvet pickups so was thinking of switching that for an HS-3 or HS-2 in the middle. What are your thoughts on that?

Vai uses an Evolution single in the middle, right? Maybe I'm wrong - can't seem to find any info on this...

Are there any Photoshoppers in the house?? If someone fancies Photoshopping either of the pics below to show white or blue pickups I'd be eternally grateful (ok maybe not that long LOL

White'll give it a PGM HAM feel, but curious about blue - anyone got links to pics??

Here's them pics





Sorry about the reflections - I bet the Photoshop Kings can deal with that too!

I think vai uses a jem single in his guitars (evo, flo). It could be a evo single coil.

all white sounds good... but so is blue/white +blue+ white/blue.
actually... the creme might compliment the binding... maybe all creme?
given that fact you want blue in there, i've read somewhere that the blue DiMarzio uses isn't quite like a rich blue; more like "washed-out" blue.
Also the reflection on the second pic makes the bridge p/u look like a D-sonic... looks neat but I noticed the first pic had the screw and pole pieces :P
the "Evo single coil" can be found on the 'bay as the ISCV2 single coil

Sweet axe man!

I think creme pickups would be the best choice too, or black/creme.

I guess the blue ones'll look like the ones on BFP JEM's.
blue/white will be better I agree, otherwise if the blue does blend in it will look like 3 single coils.

Can't seem to find many multicolor pup pics out there, least not the sort I wanna see!

I don't have a pic handy but I have a transparent black Jackson and it looks incredible with creme Dimarzio pups. Really stands out in a cool way. I'll try to dig up some pix.
