1 Strummerson 6 months ago I do. And I think that it's a bit silly. On the other hand, they sit right in the center of your guitar. So if they are ugly, they ugly up the guitar. It's lucky that I don't love humbuckers, because I hate the look of uncovered humbuckers. Bigsby aluminum pickups are beautiful, in my view. Especially with open tops. Blade or pole pieces, all the same. I think Dynas are the best looking GreTscH pickup. Though I think Filters are also nice looking. Dogears look better to me than soapbars. Though I hate the look of open top humbuckers, I think telecaster pickups, especially the angled bobbin in the bridge plate (with three barrel saddles, of course) look great. Love diamond grill foil pickups. P13s and speedbumps and kleenex boxes are all good looking. And though I think Charlie Christians are good looking as blade pickups, I don't like them at all with pole pieces for some reason I can't put my finger on. Toasters and Hi-Gains are both good looking. Love the sound of Jazzmaster pickups, but I've often though of asking Curtis Novick if he could make a silver diamond grill jazzmaster pickup. No rhyme or reason I can figure. And it seems like tone should be the only factor. But, then, old ribbon mics are gorgeous compared to most standard microphones. And they sound great as well.
