which hardware colour scheme???
Ok got my Black 91 540R LTD body in for a re-spray, it had a chip in the trem cavity (front of body) & 2 chips on the front & some scratches on the back so it needed done it couldnt be left as war wounds lol. Oh & the body is getting redone black
The guitar came original with all black hardware but mine seems to have cosmo black pickup rings ? Might have been the last owner that put these on but there worn out now. the Lo pro edge & machineheads lock nut etc are like new so not replacing these at all.
Anyways im wondering if to get new cosmo black pickup rings & dome knobs from ibanez instead of getting the black versions.
I think with the body being black & all the hardware being black the colour is overkill you cant really see anything stand out so do i add the cosmo bits for a bit of variety?
I looked on the 91 ibanez catalogue & the jewel blue 540RLTD pictured comes with what looks like black hardware apart from the pickup rings & dome knobs which are cosmo black.
Love to hear everyones opinions & thoughts on this
