  • I quite like the finish you've got on that plate - are you tempted to do the bridge, neck plate, pickup cover etc as well?

  • I think you probably could but having sanded it off previously, I know how thin it is and easy to break through to the brass. I also didn't do it for very long as the first time I pulled it out it was acceptable.

    I quite like it too, I'm not going to do the bridge as it's already chrome plated and I wouldn't want to take it off. The rest of the hardware will be nickel and I think (judging by some of the stuff on my guitars) will age to this in a couple of years.

    I've since got a quote from a local plater which claims that it'd cost £25 (although it's a bit ambiguous on their minimum charge, so I'm going to follow up). I'll probably do another one and send that on to @Sheppz at some point in the future.

    It's something I'm going to try to perfect as I've always wanted to do some smart metalwork inside the control cavities, kind of like this Tau, or as a control cavity cover.
