    ...and I've had the thought of putting a Dusenberg vibrato tailpiece on it, for extra awesomosity :cool:
    My question to you-
    Black?

    3 votes for chrome and none for the black, so far
    I'd been leaning towards the chrome as well

    I picked up one of those Les Paul Studio Tribute P-90 guitars recently and I've been thinking of adding one of these to it....

    Chrome :)

    Chrome. That’s what I put on one of my Pauls. Great trem and takes 2 minutes to install. 7536C19A-9F58-4F26-9CAA-855B461CFB1D.jpeg

    Chrome. Visually the trem is an accent. Have it match the other accents.

    Unless you're changing the saddle and knobs (and possibly pickup covers) to black, I'd go with chrome.

    There is no such thing as too much chrome. Chrome!

    Digging the Framus, BTW.

    Thanks. The plan is also gray leopard print pattern for the "wings".
    That is not to everyone's taste, I know.
    Someone's gotta be awesome :cool:

    I didn't have time to check that guitar out earlier, but I must say that's a pretty sweet looking guitar. It'll look killer once you add the wang.
