    I'm doing a (Natural) Jazz Bass with all gold hardware as soon as I get all the parts; bridge, tuners, string tree, pickguard screws, strap looks (and new neck). I know exactly how I want MY Bass to look, but I wanna see what other Basses look like with all gold hardware; so, Show your Gold :woot:

    Not usually a fan of gold-tone hardware, but on some basses it seems to look right. Not sure why.

    Just yesterday I was thinking about adding gold hardware to one of my bass ukes, and what amazes me is a thread always seems to come up relating to one of my ideas. Yesterday I also thought about having another bass uke painted Olympic white and add a tortoise pickguard, and again a thread came up on TB about that.

    I haven't finalized on which bass I'm going use the gold hardware, either a blue one, or I've been thinking of adding a burl veneer to a natural one.

    Not to get off topic, but Dude, How do you like those Hartke 15 cabs? They look pretty sweet, and that's exactly what I want to do, stack two 1x15s drool ... or are those 12s?

    Tuners are gold too, but I don't have a good picture of them.

    Yeah Thanks, I always wanted one and thought they looked cool as Hell, but I thought when it got old it would get all tarnished and look really bad so I never got one; So this will be my very first with all gold Hardware, I will post pics when it's all done.

    Mine are the 12" cabs, and I love them.
    Easy to carry, tight & punchy sounding, and they have dual voice coils allowing them to be ran at 4 or 8 ohms.
