    I can't find a supplier for smoked chrome parts anywhere. Where do you get it?
     
  2. Have you seen smoked chrome on bass parts? I haven't and that would be my first clue that there probably isn't one. The process is not too complicated but does require a special setup. Gotoh offers a violet chrome but none of the other major players have anything other than standard black.

    Oh, yeah. Lot's of it. I had an Ibanez bass with smoked chrome tuners, bridge and strap buttons. Fender uses smoked chrome on some stuff. None of the retail parts sellers seem to carry smoked chrome hardware. :(

    You should be able to buy the Ibanez parts here.

    Duh! :meh: Didn't think of that. Thanks for the link. Looks like Ibanez calls it "Cosmo Black".
