Late 90s 52 reissue special run
Detested gold hardware until this Ash bodied beast happened. I have a new appreciation for tarnished gold given the right guitar.
Sharp guitar!Klusons really make the vintage vibe!
I have gold hardware on two guitars.
I love it for the aesthetic.
I would NOT willingly retrofit it to any guitar with nickel or chrome hardware. Not in a million years.
It's a total PITA to keep clean
The bridge on my gold hardware was dirty but it cleaned right up.
I’m not fan of gold on guitars. But when I saw this combination... love it.
Have you ever seen Suhr Mateus Asato guitars?
Those guitars are so beautiful!!!
I've never seen one. They are nice looking.
I've had gold, 3-4 Stratocasters,66 ES345, 81 Epiphone Sheraton . Yes it does wear, but man, for a few years NOTHING looks cooler than them. BUT, as Robert Lockwood told me , 'you think those people in that third table back gives a sh*t what you're playin?" He wanted the Sheraton but didn't have the cash, told me"I'll get you somethin' nice...as he nudged Gatemouth Brown at a club called "Barney Googles" just south of Cleveland that was a blues venue for big name acts, circa 1985-90. We did opening gigs with him for many years. He was like a grandfather to our generation around here, priceless.
Why not? It can look cool on the right guitar. It does fade over time though.
I once coupled gold hardware with a green+gold sparkle finish. An acquired taste, but I liked it.
Chrome is kinda boring, I have to say.
I think my favourite is the "Cosmo" effect on my Ibanez S670. Not sure how they get it like that but it's halfway between black and chrome.
Because of that and the Quilted Maple top/veneer, my bandmates call it "The Pretty Guitar".
