    I did a search through talkbass, google etc. looking for smoked chrome (black chrome??) hardware for a five string bass I am modding.. from what I found so far, companies selling bass hardware sell Chrome, Gold, and Black. I have seen this hardware on a Hohner B-Bass 5 string (which I don't have anymore)... any of you knowledgeable folks know what company may sell that particular colour? (I already tried warmoth, mightymite, Gotoh etc. etc.)

    Thanks in advance...

    Thanks a million, Thunder.... I totally forgot about Schaller..... and... while I didn't find the smoke chrome I was looking for, that vintage copper is even better...

    Again.. thanks :)

    Gotoh does make smoked chrome parts, they call it "black chrome".

    I checked Gotoh's site again.... the black chrome is very black but the pictures probably don't help in determining what the colour is supposed to look like..... but they have a colour called Cosmo Black which is a smoked look to it.. they don't have any larger pictures to draw information from though..... maybe I will call them, their prices are right and the tuners I have on this particular bass are Gotoh tuners anyways... :)
