For me it's usually tone that inspires me. For example, when I switch to the single coil only on my RG I end up playing some real Hendrix-style stuff, throw on the envelope filter and I can only play funky stuff. When I first installed my Air Norton 7 I couldn't help but play some Petrucci-style tremolo picking wall-of-sound lines. Vocal sounding pickups always make me play slow, passionate stuff with a lot of bends. The list goes on and on. Conversely, bad sounding pickups make me want to put the guitar down.
