Just spray the rest of it black and be done with it.

Yeah, I'd personally swap out the tuners for something in your typical chrome or nickel finish, and replace the pin and nut with something bone colored. But that's just me.

I had a mahogany top Yari Alvarez and a 12 string Ovation back in the 80's

Nice just get some nickel or chrome grover 3x3 milk bottle tuners . Looks just like the black tuners on your guitar .

Stew-Mac.com to the rescue ! Rosewood bridge pins/pearl dot(had to have my tech guy ream the pin holes slightly to get a fit). Any kind of white ones just looked terrible there for whatever reason. They sorta mate visually with the RW bridge, fretboard & head cover veneerImage
& fairly inexpensive were pearl-look plastic knobs to fit the mini GroversImage
kinda reminds me of my 'ol, now departed Gurian Jumbo(circa 1977)
peace

Very unique look, what brand is this?
