Actually might look just fine with these and leave the rest as-is.

Or hit those black rings with some of this:

I think it's those pickup rings mostly. ...also rhythm circuit delete, humbuckers on a Fender, trem placement...

The color combo looks sweet tho if not for the black parts.

I think I'd like it of you fixed all the things that Nick pointed out, but that would basically turn it back into a normal Jazzmaster, but white and with a matching headstock.

Although I'd want a mint guard too, I think.

Lulz at that Andertons description. Hardly period correct hardware, and oh yeah indie rock came right after the popularity of surf. Also, it's just a regular old Blacktop HH model, in a different color?

Despite that, give it a different color guard (black or a dark gray anodized aluminum would be my choices), filtertron style pickups, and white witch hat knobs and I'd rock it. I don't even mind the lack of upper controls, though it would've been so much better if they put switches up there for coil splits.

I never can get humbucker rings that are put over the pickguard. Just beyond my understanding

If talking about the guitar in general, it seems OK to me. I remember folks were puking at Pawn Shop Mustang, Vintage Modified Jaguars with strat jack plates or Jazzmasters without tremolo and now everyone likes them. Just give it a time

The pickup rings really ruin this, as has been stated.

It has real potential if you:

- replace scratcher with flat white
- white OR black humbuckers but NO zebra or just regular jazzy pups

The colour looks like it would be beauty in person against a white scratchplate

I think it became a commonplace sight due to people concealing shoddy route work and/or having a pickguard route that was too wide for a bucker (like jags and jazzies) while now it's just sort of been around as a thing long enough that people are trying it from the get-go... which I agree doesn't make a lot of sense, I'll admit to having a soft spot for teh Kurdtz's Jag but not many other guitars to bear this combo.

I do see it making sense to some on big-pickguarded SGs though, because of the string angle. The rings on the original SGs were slanted because the neck is pitched back, so the strings get closer to the body toward the neck. I generally stick foam under the bridge-side of both pickups on my bigguard ones, but you'll see many (including an Angus Young sig model) just go with rings on top. It lets you get the polepieces closer to the strings.
