      I love the high tech 'mysterious' looks of the EMG style pickups. That's why my Duncans are covered with black plastic covers. I still need to find a way to get a SD logo on the plastic covers.

          It all depends on the color of the guitar and the pickguard (if there is one).
          Ibanez RG1570: stock
          Squier Strat: stock

          Next on the list: an amp that isn't crap!

            I like Zebra on just about everything unless it has gold hardware, then I prefer gold covered.

                  Amen about the last part bro, but I do care what they look like. Yes it defenitely depends on what color (or top) the axe is finished in. I like Reversed Zebra in pure black, pure white, all transperent finishes, and maybe a few others. And as I'm a great fan of figured top finished guitars, I love reversed zebra. I like it more than zebra, just because the Duncan logo is on the black bobbin and is thereby more visible. If the pick up has the logo, might as well show it off right?

                  My alltime favorite would be black bobbin with logo with chrome bobbin, but because I never encountered any, I'd like to put a chrome bobbin topper over the white one (or the one with no logo)

                    It is true that depends on the color o the guitar but, anyway, i love the nickel covered pickups.

                      Ok, maybe I should have beed more specific: I donīt generally care what they look like, it just has to fit to the guitar. For example A Blue giotar with PInk/Green Zebra pickups isnīt quite what Iīm looking for, and a Cream Invader looks a bit strange in a Lester IMO. But for the most part

                          I hear that! Something about a guitar with some chrome that reminds me of a corvette. Too cool!

                            Nickel all the way! Soooo classic looking. Followed closely by zebras in any paul-type guitar.

                              zebra, rev zebra, nickel covered, double cream any of those will do. black seems a little bland to me and im not a big fan of gold
