The knobs retain the black vintage look while the chrome tuners brighten things visually...
That does look nice. I replaced my 517 nickel tuners with the Satin Black tuners and I dig the all black look. However, yours looks really classy as well.

They say that tone is in the fingers....I say it is in your head.
