I would say that no pickup is "Ugly"...

It's more like which pickups look good on which guitars...They ALL have their place.

Like EMG's on a Strat = yuk!! But EMG's on an Ibanez (Non LP model) = PURTY!!
Single coils on a Les Paul = yuk!! But Single Coils on a Strat = PURTY!!
SoapBars on an Ibanez (non LP model) = yuk!! But SoapBars on an LP = PURTY!!

its all about what guitar its on, but the p90 a telecaster is pretty ugly. if you have the space for a humbucker on a telecaster it should always be a covered humbucker

^maybe it does, but it's a very touchy pickup, it sounds good in some guitars and not others.

Also, a line 6 spider III is not a good amp.

anyway, I'd have to say this: or this

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

this thread is pretty trollish.

All Pickups look good in the right setup like previously mentioned.

I've never really liked EMGs.
But on the other hand, I've almost always liked Laces.
That one Duncan, the P-rail is kind of funny looking. I get that it's functional, but man.


Geeze that Invader is ugly.

I don't like double rails at all. I think that the rail/regular humbucker looks kind of cool though.

Comanche-style Zs freaked me out at first.
