I'm guessing that it is because there is not a high demand for such products. You do find the occasional pickups that come in white though.

Everybody makes sure to look away from me when I'm shirtless... I am an extremely hairy individual.

Like was said, they're plastic casing. Unless you've got exposed magnets, I'd decorate them yourself if you're not satisfied with black. And even with exposed magnets it wouldn't be too hard.

Kent Armstrong makes cream, white and "aged" pickup covers. A quick google search should bring up some retailers.

And I think I'll pass on the shirtless discussion, for obvious reasons...lol.

My band has a benefit as far as shirtlessness goes. We have a chick singer, so if people aren't digging our stuff, she can take off her top, and everyone will be interested 0_0

But to add to the discussion, isn't it possible that painting the covers could cause issues for the magnets picking up the signal?

I dont even have pickups on my bass..


Jokes.

To add to the discussion: My freind has silver pickups on his P bass... Where the plastic bit should be, where its usually black, its silver. Looks like metal too, but I cant be sure.
Ive seen white ones in my local music store, so they do exsist.
