Black Chrome?

I love the look of the Custom FMT HH Tele's hardware in what appears to be called "black chrome." It's not quite black and it's not quite chrome, but somewhere in between. I'm in the process of building my own Tele and would like to use this color hardware for it, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Does anyone know of any resources for this kind of thing?

This is a picture of what I'm talking about:

I hate "cosmo" hardware just because it fades really badly.  I don't know if its all the same, but my ibanez s470 hardware looks like crap.  after only a year or so the tuners, the bridge, and the pickup rings were all fading and looking terrible.
really? my friend has an s prestige for a while and his cosmo black is fine... how long ago did you get your s?
