Hello as a beginner guitar player my parents have just bought me a Gretsch for passing all my classes in school,they also said i could have it refinished anyway i wanted and i immediatly picked it to be finished like the 'Pink Penguin' Gretsch.I bought the golden tail piece to replace my current bigsby and have had a gold 'penguin' pickguard made by a local store to fit it.However all of the other hardware is silver including the tuners and pickups so im wondering if anyone knows somebody in the uk who could refinish them in gold?.i know i could search on the internet but id like to go with someone who i know is good ;D

Yes. Get gold hardware. Seriously, you can get things gold plated, but it will be cheaper to just sell the old stuff on eBay and buy some gold stuff from a guitar parts shop.
