    ...or white?

    I was thinking of having a Warmoth bass built - all natural light wood. I was wondering if anyone knows if any manufacturer offers pickups with different color options than black or white.

    DiMarzio used to make some ugly flessh-colored things. Maybe they still do.

    it seems that you could paint them yourself if you'd like... the paint shouldn't get in the way of the magnetic signal at all... especially if the covers are removable, it should be simple.. if they're glued to the pup it could get a little messier.

    Yep, I'd say look into the Rio Grandes. I've got a Gold Sparkle pickup in a g***** covered in Leopard's fur. :D Looks perfect! I believe Rio makes faux?/real? Maple, Mahogany, and Koa pickups.

    I'ts just molded plastic, shouldn't you be able to get it in any color you want?? Hey, get the covers machined out of aluminum and powdercoat them. That'll never wear off.

    Way to go. It looks great.

    There is also those DI Marzio Alchemy 101 pickups with Mahogany covers.

    Unfortunately, they're discontinued, but a lot of shops probably have a few in stock.
