    Black.
    Keep the originals in the case for when Sergio trades if for a Santana.

    I think both the ivory and black look good. Can't go wrong either way. I'm not a fan of wooden pickup rings. Maple, maybe, if you can get it to match the natural edge of the top, but even then...

    My gut says the right chrome rings would slay with that batch of hues. Otherwise, black.

    Yeah, I tried it on some Ivory tuning keys. Didn't take very well. At least not as well as the white aftermarket knobs I had.

    While I like the black rings, I think the ivory compliments the MOP birds.

    You know, you're right. I hadn't looked that far "up". I may just leave them.

    I voted to try maple but............ I think chrome ones would really work well but I don’t think you can find chrome for the narrow field. I don’t think black would work, Rosewood 2nd place. My 2 cents

    I like it a lot. The Ebony gave it a really classy look while still maintaining a bad ass vibe.

    You can get your pickup rings in any color so long as that color is ivory.
