May I see your jazz basses?

    Hey all! I'm trying to decide on a hardware overhaul for my jazz deluxe and was hoping to see some of your basses. The base is black with rosewood fretboard. I'm toying with getting all gold hardware, and a black pickguard. Another idea was to go completely black -- hardware, pickguard, controlplate, metal knobs...black black black <insert spinal tap reference here>. Or go all chrome, and maybe a mirror pickguard. And then I saw the wood options...

    So, if you have a styled up jazz, I'd love to see it. If it's black with not stock hardware, that'd be even better.

    Thanks all for the pics and input!!

    My measley MIM jazz. Not what you're looking for, but I can photoshop anything you need if you decide.

    Gold hardware looks crappy most of the time. Munji's QMT is one of the rare exceptions. Just say no to gold.
