    Can anyone tell me if the black ultralites have gloss finish satin like finish. I've seen the chrome ones that are satin like and not shiny. I'm trying to decide on what to replace the tuners on my bass, I'm not a big fan of gold. I'd rather really have Black Chrome (Ibanez calls them Cosmo Black) but I can't fine those anywhere.

    Why don't you check with them directly? Here is Web address: http://hipshotproducts.com/

    Here is the phone #: 800-262-5630

    I just got an extender key from them and had my invoice handy.

    They are satin standard but they do offer finish options on certian things, not sure if that is one of them.

    From what I heard, the black gloss(hardcoat) ultralites are going to be coming out soon.

    Thanks all.

    I forgot all about the hipshot website. I emailed them and the black is a satin finish, which is what I prefer, satin.

    I wonder how gray the satin chrome is. Looks kinda light from the pics at their site. If it was a couple of shades darker, that'd be another option for me.
