bigsby finishes question??


Recommended Posts

im thinking of reaplaceing all the gold hardware on my P93 with nickel or chrome, but i was wondering if there was a way to dull the finish on a bigsby, or do they sell them in a mat like , or like brushed aluminum, or can i put somthin on the finish of a regular one to dull it down a bit? the gold bigsby is just too damn shiny and i kinda like silver on red more then gold, any help guys?

Unfortunately I don't know any household chemical that will eat away gold and won't touch alu, but Ron makes a good point. Obviously doing this sort of thing, you don't want to leave it unattended. Observe the process, and as soon you see it desolve the gold, remove the part, rinse and take off any gold remnants with some steelwool.
