Help with Fernandes Sustainer?

I've posted before with no luck so i'm trying agin if that's okay/

I am about to purchase the Fernandes FSK-401 Sustainer Kit but its in BLACK and obviously I want WHITE

So...

What do people do about this? Paint it? haha... get Bobbin Toppers?

Thanks for any help

I just really want a white sustainer and they are impossible to find. Which is odd...

Bobbin toppers will probably be your best bet.

It would involve some serious work but you might be able to modify a white blank cover. Allparts sells them.

Wow! Okay let me check them out

In the meantime, I talked with the guy at the Bobbin Toppers site and he suggested spray painting with Krylon "Fusion" spray that bonds to plastic without chipping.

He said to mask off poles and logo and spray and VIOLA!

But I'll see what you're talking about and see if my Luthier guy can do it that way.

Thanks for your help!
