I've been thinking about buying a Stingray 4 and totally opposite of what I would normally choose (natural finish), I am really drawn to the Firemist Purple with matching headstock. It just screams funky to me. Anyone have experience with how their matte black hardware holds up? I am guessing it's anodized? Their website doesn't say. If the purple had chrome hardware, I would be completing my order now. The sound of the 40th old smoothie may over ride my thought of getting the purple anyway. Just curious about the black hardware.
