No! The emporer's new clothes. I would not over dress this axe.

You've got Nice black P90's,black guard.black on black.Chrome(which is on it now?) or...nickel (my choice)

Gold on a Custom? :yesway:

Do YOU want to change it to gold? if so, I would do it. Taking a poll seems wishy washy to me, if I created polls for all the changes I make on my guitars I would have stock guitars.

Lol, I haven't decided if i want to put another couple hundred dollars into this guitar for aesthetics alone, but I've been contemplating gold hardware on it since i bought it in August

Now if i got better bridge, tailpiece & tuners out if the deal then might make the change a little easier to swallow...

My best luck with gold hardware has always been Gotoh. They also have an option for a unique machine button that just looks classy. Philly luthier or japarts have been amazing in getting me whatever gotoh hardware I want.

I've always disliked gold hardware on guitars....... until I bought my Explorer with gold hardware..! Yours would look fantastic all dressed up in gold.

I’d change the guard also to a wide or vintage bevel. Makes a big difference.

I do not like gold hardware. So, it depends on your personal taste.

Go to 6:14....this is one of the top 10 most outstanding songs ever written imho
slash “floats” down sunset with a black beauty...of course he took the covers off as he always does

That guitar would be my ideal guitar.

Not a fan of gold hardware, but somehow on a black LP, without pickup covers and without the guard it blends to the perfect look.

It also looks like his tuner buttons are vintage, which is absolutely gorgeous and makes the gold more refined.

To the OP:
Leave it as it is.
