    Anyone know which brand has tuning keys with a nice finish (like the fender american ones) not the cheap looking chrome.

    Nickel or Chrome. What's the difference?

  2. Chrome is harder and has a high, mirrorlike finish. Nickel is a softer metal and has a lighter metallic color.

    Gotoh on the Asian import side and Schaller on the European side both offer nickel finishes. I like Grover's chrome as well.
