    Wow, I usually do not like gold hardware at all, but with that binding it looks really sharp. Thumbs up!

    Are the knobs gold as well? I can't tell in the second pic.

    Knobs are gold... it's hard to get them to show in a pic. I change to gold because of the binding. I think it accents it...
    Thanks for the compliments...
  7. Yeah I'm also not normally a fan of gold, but it looks great, although the composition of the photographs may have a lot to do with that.

    Are those Auroras on it?

    I don't usually like gold either, but in this case you pulled it off quite nicely.

    Looks sharp! I'm in the "don't like gold hardware" crowd, but yours is gorgeous.

    Man, would it be too much gold if you put pickups like these in?

    Oh dam! I thought I was done. What is that PU? Will it fit in the spot where my EMG 35hz go? The only thing is that I have a ebony ramp in between the PU's and it may no t look good.

    I wish I could help with ANY of that, haha. I, like the idiot I am, just thought it might look cool with gold pickups....so I did a google search.

    That's a gold Gretsch Fillerton pickup. I doubt it would fit perfectly. But may you can just get gold pickup covers?

    I apologize for being zero help!

    No problem...i'm not sure,it may be to much anyway.

    Black with some gold highlights here and there certainly pleases my sense of esthetics. In this case, it's tasteful but not overwhelming. Well done!
