Would it be possible to do the black hardware?
Does it wear off easily or is it as durable as chrome?
Also what would be the last possible moment left to change my mind and make it fretted? I think my mind is playing tricks on me since the lunar eclipse!

Black is possible, but chrome is harder. I haven't seen the black wear off easily, but then again, we done far fewer blackend brass than any other plating on hardware.

The last possible moment is now. The neck is ready for the fingerboard. I just talked to Bob and put a note on the neck that it might change to fretted. So the bass won't proceed until I hear from you fretted or fretless. Either one is fine, just tell me what you want.

Let's go with the fretless. I think 3 fretted excels and a spoiler should be enough for touring. Also we'll stick with the origional hardware setup. Had a mental hiccup there or was it hormones?
The lined ebony with no inlays will be perfect for the look I've grown to love.
