Also, where did you source most of the materials from? where they re-purposed things that already had the right look, or did you fab it all?
Hey, quick question, roughly how much weight did all this add to the guitar?
Hello again, quick question, did you put any kind of lacquer on the hardware that you sanded to keep the copper from oxidation?
Yea, it did, lol. Had to take some copper off to smooth it, but I've only done the trem bar so far. I'm okay with it looking more "weathered" anyway. THANKS!
Nah, I love the copper look, so I'd like to keep it. Mine is apparently plated in Nickel. 200 grit was even taking me FOREVER so I switched to a dremel tool with a 150 grit wheel on it. That did it. Is nickel usually harder, or might my plating just be thicker? It is a $400 guitar vs the $20 job in your pics. Any advice?
Hey, Can you please tell me what method you used to sand the chrome down to copper? Also, is it possible to sand through the copper layer. I'm wanting to do this to my guitar...
