How do I remove gold plating from 5420 pickups?

Here's my 6120 in vintage orange with chrome hardware from the factory.

I think that vintage orange looks fine with either gold or chrome/nickel hardware.

Just a personal choice and liking.

Wow, that is gorgeous! Love that quilted top. I hope the orange Electromatic turned out well with the chrome parts, too.

I've gotta disagree with Gold and Green not working together. This Looks almost perfect, to me.

In all fairness, that's a much darker green and lighter gold than my Jet (posted above).
