Is this a good idea? replacing all my chrome knobs, tuners and bridge with gold plated brass stuff? Would this look any good on my squier jazz (antique sunburst)? I want to hear your veiw.

Pick whatever hardware you happen to prefer. Personally I think gold hardware only looks good with a few different colors of bass:dark cool colors like green, purple and blue, but if you like it, go for it.

I wouldn't invest very much in a squire like that though when I could be saving up for a new bass or amp.

Yeah, but if he's not planning on doing that soon, then he could just make his bass look sexier. Plus, he can always transfer hardware if he gets a new bass.

Could be, but the most important thing to remember is that it wasn't your fault, even if it was.

Well, I mean:

It looks fantastic on dark colours, but on burst colours:

It looks much classier than cooler (sorry for the bad pic of my Strat).

Agreed. Sunburst looks mature, almost refined; dark colours, it just looks cool.

And Fitzy, I have that same shirt, in green. HURRY UP THE CAKES, right?

personally, if you had enough money to upgrade the bridge, knobs and tuners, I would have just got a new bass or amp, seeing as you have two beginner basses, or saved up for one down the road.
