Hey guys, I started a project to try to make the best guitar possible for under 250$(USD). I bought a Rg321mh body(the silver/greenish one) and an Ibanez rg shark tooth inlayed neck from '97, a cosmo fixed bridge, gotoh tuners, jackplate and all for less than 175$. Now all thats left is a pickup! Now heres the thing. I'm planning on buying a black pickguard, that covers up the pickup switch, and the tone knob slot as well as the NECK PICKUP. So all that will be visible is the bridge pickup and volume knob. So, recommend me a color for a pickup(BESIDES BLACK) that would look cool on this guitar:



I was thinking white would look cool. Also red. I included the pictures because its hard to tell what the color is by the manufacturer's pictures. Also, the knob would match the pickup(or whatever your all think looks good).

Thank you all so much!

Fixed the large pic problem. What else besides black. I don't want black with a black pickguard.

Omg, HUGE PICS.

I'd say black or if you really wanna be cool paint them to match the body.


thats stupid.

your bridge is black as well, i dont know what other color would match

Bridge is cosmo. Well I thought white would look cool. Maybe even red. It doesn't have to "match" Ya know?

I guess you could do something Vai like and put on some random bright color.

I think black/creme would look good with that body color and that pickguard.

Or, if you plan on doing two DiMarzios, forget the pickguard and get their camo pickups

Red would be classy but I think white guard with black pickups would look the most classy.

Dimarzio makes pickups with many different color might look at their site.
I found one with a camo color.

It might look cool since your guitar is a beige color.

You're stupid

If you don't want something like black idk, I suppose you could pull a Vai and do something like bright neon green? Or those mirror ones if you're looking for something interesting. The camo one's mentioned look pretty cool too... Or pink. You should go with pink. Bright, neon, 5 year old girl nail polish pink.

pink = badass.

^that's been scientifically proven too.
