Refinishing hardware

I have a couple of chrome pieces i want to make black. Hard to find pieces so unfortunately i can't buy replacements in the right color. What process did ibanez use for their black hardware? Simple paint and clearcoat?

They use an electroplating process. I have used duracoat with good success so far.
