powdercoating?

Not sure where to put this thread. I wanted to know if powdercoating a trem has been done by anyone, or is it a possibly solution in changing from gold to black hardware?

Thanks for the advice!

- correct -

My advice would be to sell the existing trem and buy a powdercoated one.

Powdercoating is a difficult thing to do, given that it requires a charged metal and opposite charged paint/resin, sprayed in a powder. You'd have to strip your existing trem as well, I guess. Don't think that's too easy.

Re: powdercoating?

Wouldn't the coating be too thick?

Re: powdercoating?

Yes, there are people who have powercoated trems successfully. It is a very difficult thing to do well. The biggest problem is the thickness of the coating interfering with the parts fitting together. You have to work that out.

I would also say that if you want to change your hardware color, you should just sell your parts and buy new ones in the right color. You are going to spend more time and money trying to go the powercoating route.

DaveK over on the projectguitar forum is one person offering that kind of work.
