    I guess my assumptions were true...no one has it these days. Not even on a Warwick?

    I made my oun satin Hardware by taking shiny chrome, rubbing it down with very fine sandpaper then rubbing it down with a green pad to finish the job. Turns out great. Only took 5 minutes each piece.

    He's talking about the scotchbrite pads you get @ wally world or wherever in the kitchen department. They work kind of like steel wool but don't fall apart as fast.

    Does look really good. I'll have to post a few photos of my 'wick later.
     
  9. Hey thanks!

    Yes show that 'wick!

    :)

    Get the green or broown "FINE" pads in the (home depot/lowe's) sandpaper area. their made for the job & sorry the bridge pic looks all jacked to one side I was still in the process of stringing the bass.
