You have to get used to seeing the silver plate tarnish and then embrace it. I own a Yamaha 82ZR soprano that's silver plated and at first I was a little taken aback with how it started to turn. Then I just decided to go with it and now the look is totally cool. I wipe it down with a soft cloth after use and every couple of months I use a silver polish cloth on it. If you go with a cloth you need to find a really soft lightly abrasive one, because even if it's cloth it still contains an abrasive.

As far as the sound, silver VS standard lacquer. I played both and decided on the silver just because of the look. I really didn't notice any difference in the sound.
