Just as the title implies.... i've been looking at hardware for replacing on my new guitar(when i get it) a and i'm just wondering, what's the difference between the two... on pup covers, bridges and tuning keys?

nickel is the cheaper alternative to chrome.

Which one looks better/lasts longer?

Because i always thought chrome was, i guess you'd say, the "king" of shininess, but whenever i see a gutiar with nickel-plated hardware, it actually looks better.

EDIT: or is that just the computer playing tricks on me?

^^agree.. I prefer the look of Nickel as well..
