I love that look too. I have a set of Opus 2’s in piano black and gold plated trim. I haven’t dusted them off in two years. I keep having visions of scratching them as I get near them with any sort of polishing cloth….

Piano Black is incredibly labor intensive. It takes numerous coats of clear to give it depth. Each coat is polished prior to the next coat. Not sure how many coats go on Axiom’s, but it usually takes no less than ten.
