Hey, guys Right now I have an Ibanez RG2570e Prestige(Vital Silver).
Ive been looking around for differnt color knobs and tuners and stuff, but I dont know if they will look right on my guitar.
Do you think Gold tuners and knobs would look good on my guitar?
What other stuff would look cool(nothing too crazy, like a random yellow pickup or anything. lol)?
I already have a Black Evolution pickup in the bridge, so Im not changing that out, but Im going to buy a PAF Pro for the neck(so its open for color suggestions as well)

Heres a picture of it if you dont know what it looks like-

I think gold hardware on a silver guitar would be great...but putting in a gold trem and gold tuners...don't want to think about how much that would run you. In my opinion, guitars look best with all the hardware matching...the stock stuff is better than half stock and half gold.

Unless your gonna make all the hardware gold not just tuners and knobs i wouldn't do gold.

Pink, yellow, purple, Loch Ness green; it's an Ibanez, so anything goes


Seriously though, whatever you go for, go for it completely. If you want blue pickups, make all of them blue. If you want gold hardware (which would look good on a silver guitar), make everything gold.

maybe all gold hardware, but idk. too much bling imo. id say its fine as is, with the black Evo and a black PAF Pro.

Thanks guys. I would make all the hardware gold except for the Edge Pro. Would that look ok?



I understand replacing the trem, especially for something as pointless as this (although nice looks do matter), is very expensive, but keep in mind the trem is a very prominent feature on the guitar and having it in a different color than the other hardware might look strange.

It's a superstrat. Everything on it is supposed to look like it's out of place / clashing / wrong. Take my Kramer for example...

I actually think that blue pickup bobbins would look nice on that...

^ +1, or metallic grey to match with the body



The body is more silver than metallic grey.

The thing is, it doesn't really matter what brand it is. If you already love the guitar, but would like to upgrade it a little, who cares whether it's Ibanez or not?

I think it would look best if it "changed" over into my hands... haha. But yeah, i think white pups would look sweet.

White plastic and flake-ish solver don't really look good together.

My vote would be for blue covers.
