I am very curious about this. I just picked up my unicorn...which is 2014 Axcess in white with the floyd rose and nickel hardware. These have been very hard to find without the gold hardware, but I was able to acquire. Other than the serial number, is there a known amount of how many were made with this combo, or is that kind of ridiculous to keep track of? I had a hard time tracking this down when they were new, but over the years I have seen about 3 pop up for sale. Even photos have been few and far between.

Unicorns do not exist. Your guitar does. Nice. Lots of hardware. I do not like Gold hardware either. I am debating changing out all the Gold hardware on my BB King, but I do not want to F with the pups. So it will probably stay Gold. Every thing is Gold. The jacks, the nut on the selector switch, pup covers, the TP-6 bridge, tail stop, the Varitone washer, tuners, TRC, and every damn screw. I know Gold is supposed to look expensive, but after a while it looks like a-ss.

Yea, they are very rare, but I just didn't know how rare....I have only seen 3-4 up for sale over the years...but that doesn't mean they are the only ones. loving this guitar! With the exilirs, it plays about as effortless as it can possibly be.

Gorgeous guitar.

Love the appointments, and (like you, I suspect) I am not a fan of gold hardware.

:unsure:
Am I alone in this?

Thanks! Yea, I can't say I like the gold hardware at all...Maybe when it is new, but I just don't understand it on a white guitar. I have no idea why every white LP I see has is...The nickel is def a rarity. Looks great on my Gibson coffee table too. Even the black guitars...I have that 40th anniversary black beauty from 97..I actually just swapped out all the gold for nickel 2 months back. I just think it is more sleek...I have a midnight manhattan blue w nickel as well but that only comes to life with bright lights.
