    yeah i don't usually like quilt tops, gold hardware or pickup rings at all... but it just works for me. I've also had it 15 years now so the sentimental value is strong haha

    Awesome S!

    Whilst not an Ibanez, this Sims Custom Shop JPM style replica is worth posting

    Why would anyone hate on pickup rings...I'll never understand. A guitar without pickup rings is like a person without eyebrows...You can just tell something don't look right.

    It depends on the guitar, I personally prefer not to have them, but if a 6 stringer has them, I'll replace them with Tripleshots...

    Pickup rings outside of a Les Paul look super super bargain Barrell Gio Ibanez cheap to me for some reason. Even on high ends.

    Some of my favorite guitars disagree.

    There are definitely some guitars I agree a lack of pickup rings looks better. For example I love the look of the Lynch ESP and Ibanez RG565 both of which are HxS and I think it looks weird to have a pickup ring on the humbucker...I would rather it be direct mount. But otherwise I believe pickup rings are more than just what they intended to be on a Les Paul...I don't care for the look of an exposed side of humbucker and the black fabric tape wrap and the ring hides that and offers additional contrast to a guitar body

    Just my two cents...on sale this weekend for the low low price of only one penny

    With pickup rings, covered pickups look a lot less cheap than uncovered ones. That covers the first four pics. That strat though definitely looks idiotic... pickup rings in a strat pickguard? Seriously?

    Genuinely feel that all of those would look much better with direct mounts. Just my opinion

    That's blasphemy. Unless someone can produce some convincing photoshops otherwise.

    Interesting, thank you! I just stumbled upon the one I posted in my daily Reverb browsing and was surprised.
