I change my mind daily about the gold hardware. It might be a little over the top for my taste. I've also thought about going with black hardware with some gold accests (like the tuning keys & gold pickup trim rings)
Headless Status Charger bass. The same one is played by John 'Rhino' Edwards of Status Quo. Base model costs around 1,600 British pounds, which is roughly 3,600 Canadian dollars. I am thinking that maybe I'll purchase a 5-string version of it, and possibly even with a tremolo arm (but I doubt that it is possible), all of which would make it MORE expensive. It looks great and it works great. There is nothing alike. And it looks a bit like my Ibanez SR600.
