A strait no from me - looks like a naff handbag.
Found that out the hard and fast way!
i love it on white guitars if it wares of so be it
I’d just wipe down the guitar after particularly sweaty sessions.
Let the gold age and fade because that’s what it does.
This Falcon is a 2004. Still looks good to me!
@Bella got a cool new gold-plated blinger I'm sure she'll want to show off here!
Isn't it really brass? That said, I like that hardware on a walnut Gretsch Country Gentleman.
Gold? No way! Then I bought this:
Must play blindfolded!
Yes! I forgot to mention... I like your poem.
The gold plated tuners on my Rickenbacker 650S show very little wear;
But the control plate is showing it's age (I bought it used in 2004);
The photos were taken in 2012, it is not significantly worse today. I think that I inherited the wear from the previous owner. The only other guitar I have with any gold plate is a Yamaha LL-11e bought new in 2001, this recent phot shows very little wear on the tuners;
I had an SRV strat with the gold hardware. I loved it but the gold sure did wear off fast down where my hand touched the gold bar and bridge. I tried to keep it clean but the oils from my hands just wore it right off and it got splotchy looking really fast. The gold tuners stayed nice for longer I suppose because my hand wasn’t making constant contact like on the bridge and trem bar.
No pressure though, right ? I'll grab some pics later. I still havent taken any serious pics of it yet and it's probably time.
Feel free to steal it: it is yours
