    Black rings with the White 3-way cap...

    ...at least that's how I roll on my gear.

    Since the vote is close enough, you might want to consider one white and one black.

    Ivory for me; the black rings make the whole presentation a little too dark. And I like the classic look of ivory anyway.

    But it’s certainly nice either way.

    Always bet on black.



    Except in this case, I'm surprised to say that I think the ivory works! The black rings with those covers make the pickups look like little harmonicas to me.

    You guys are the best. Thanks for all your input.

    I wound up going with black, for several reasons:
    1. It matches the knobs, the fretboard, and the ebony tuning keys better.
    2. It blends in better with the top, making body look wider in relation to the pickups, which I find desirable.
    3. It makes the purple mist stain seem a little more vibrant.

    It was a tough decision, though, so thanks for helping out!

    I think the black shows off the stunning top better. Good choice.
