Does anybody have a source for same-color cream or other off-white covers for both soapbar and Strat single coil pickups?

I'm building a P90/S/S strat and would love the pickups to match.

You're gonna love that pickup combo. A P90 is the PERFECT Strat bridge pickup, and still does the in-between sound brilliantly.

My pickups do not match, however. Lolz...

Just try and find a vendor that stocks both, and see if you can't get them to supply a close match.
Plastics of different compositions take pigment in different ways. The same shade applied to two different plastics can often lead to a discernible colour difference between them.

Maybe you can do the coffee trick to darken one that is lighter than the others. Some people do it to age white pickup covers. Doesn't take long but might be hard to get a perfect match.

Thanks folks. I emailed some winders and vendors and got similar advice: different plastics = different colors, not much to do.

I decided to go with black.
