  1. Check this out! It's a new, revolutionary way to chrome virtually anything. The steps are astoundingly simple. So, for all you players that's been "jonesing" for that chromed Warwick look? You can do it at home. And, it looks great!

    Check it:

    That's awesome! I will be trying that on SOMETHING soon.
     
  4. I wonder how it would do on hardware? It seems it would do okay. But, I won't be takin' the tuning keys and bridge off of my '61 Jazz for a "touch-up" anytime soon......

    That was one of the cooler things I haff seen in a long time.
     
  6. For sure. It's absolutely amazing with all the technology going on these days. I'm gonna try to find out the cost. I'll let you all know if I find anything out about it.

    If you read the page above you will find this at the bottom:

    Update: Since I posted this article in July of 2010, there’s been an incredible amount of interest in Chrome Solutions. Unfortunately, the company seems to have gone out of business, since I’ve had no luck in tracking down any further information. The closest competitors I could find are Spray On Chrome and Alsa Corporation; for additional information on the products they produce, please contact the companies directly via the above links.

    Indeed Jay's friends at www.chromesolutions.de seem to have a totally dead website. The second supplier mentioned above, Alsa Corporation seems to be the more hobbiest friendly of the two. It looks like it could be a fun process to use for many things, I wonder how well it works in the hands of a typical untrained user?

    As to which fingerboard goes best which chrome I can only reply that surely you are going to chrome the fingerboard too, aren't you!?

  18. As a car guy, i highly DISAPPROVE.

  19. I love how you left a whole lot of wiggle room....because I'm the type that will faux chrome my own shadow...or 'something' heck man this looks like once you start there is no stopping :D
