White hardware - Wouldn't it look nice on a JEM7VWH?

I was thinking about how Ibanez' new cosmo white hardware, as seen on some Custom models and on the Japanese website, would look on a JEM7VWH or a UV7PWH. It would make an almost completely white guitar (minus fretboard), with possible white pickup pole pieces. Striking looks IMHO.

What is your opinion?

White hardware

When I was in Japan a few weeks ago, I test-drove an RG770FM, which is supposed to have the 'cosmo white' hardware. *It's not really white. * *It looks more like brushed chrome, like on Sperzel's locking tuners. *Sure looks white in their website pics though.

White hardware

Brian "Head" Welch of KoRn has a nice custom guitar with white hardware. It's pictured in some ads and catalogs. I wonder if that's the same as the cosmo white hardware on the Japanese RGs ...

If you find the white hardware, let me know - I'd be interested in having your gold hardware for my BFP.

Maybe we can split the cost.

White hardware

They had pictures of one of Munky's guitars with white hardware on the Korn website but I think they took them off, They must have double coated it because the trem looked solid white(not at all chrome).

the guitar played by the guy in koRn that you may be talking about, someone at project guitar copied the idea and made his own.

This thread is more than four years old!

But white hardware would be cool, though.

Powder coating hardware is pretty cheap and durable. You should try it.

I love white pickups and white period. I think white hardware looks good on that color.
