What type of finish on late 80's RG hardware

Does anyone know how they put the finish on say the original knobs or string trees that came on a late 80's ibanez? They mostly had black knobs and trem's.. Is all that stuff just a powder coat process?

Cosmo black is black anodized over chrome plating. I'm not sure how they did the regular black but i'd assume it involves some sort of electroplating.
