    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but, I'm about to aquire a Yamaha BB1600 and I can't stand gold hardware. I plan on replacing the tuners with schallers and the knobs with something else, but can you get the pickup cavity pieces in anything other than gold...well I don't even know where you get gold ones, so yeah...any info will be greatly appreciated.
    thanks

    don't know if you can get replacement parts from Yamaha, but you could always look at having them re-plated in whatever you prefer. They also might be someting that a custom builder might be able to fabricate for you also.
