Mine has the 'stove balck' vlack whidh is a kind of satin feel and perfectly applied but with a chrome base plate. I had hoped/expected for the front piece to be also chrome, but that might have been a misunderstanding in ordering. Hipshot were prepared to do customization and such...and on this guitar I had wondered if the balck would not look better (the back and sides and some other hardware is black) so this is a bit of a compromise and looks good, the chrom plating is a very high quality. The mechanical action is exceptionally smooth and sure falling into place into the three positions surely and the entire unit is smaller than one might think. The leavers are in the up position in this picture (or highest pitch) in all these pics. I am sure it will work better with the strings on to provide some pull on the mechanism.
