    anyone have any?

    I'm looking to fix up the fretless SX bass I got a week or so ago and was thinking about putting all black hardware on it.

    Black hardware looks great! This one is a way different style than an SX but you wanted pics of black hardware... :cool:

    My Spector has all black hardware. Click here for pics.

    The Euro series is especially useful as it shows very similar basses with both gold & black hardward. To my mind all-black hardware works best on mono-chormatic basses (i.e. those with little or no color) and especially well with ebony fingerboards. If the bass has got some color in it, I think all-black tends to look a bit flat, sort of loses a bit of life.

    By no means a global rule but do note that it tends to be cheaper basses that use black hardware.

    I have a couple. Nothing you will find on the market today though.

    This is my 'stealth' bass.:bag::ninja: Black strings, unlined board, black hardware, black body.

    The glare on the bridge kind of messes up the effect on this one.

    I've played a few Warkicks and pretty much dig on them, but that Red Vampyre looks awesome.

    I believe that's his Brawley 6-string.
