I went with chrome on this one. Fiesta Red is a little to orange for gold, IMHO.

I'd probably go chrome or satin nickel. I never cared for gold until seeing some of the Mary Kaye projects posted here. What color is the pickguard going to be?

I'm going against the grain and voting black. Black and red = awesome color combination. JMHO

I like gold hardware but I dont like the fact that it wears out revealing the chrome below... chrome hardware doesnt have this problem.

Fiesta Red >> Nickel

Speaking of Gold

Anybody have a positive experience with a plater in the USA that they'd care to share?

I'm gonna have some parts I have plated for the Froggy bass and I'd love a recommendation or 2...

TIA

I went with the crowd and voted chrome. You can't go wrong with chrome.
