  • Replating a bridge

    Has anyone tried to replate a corroded bridge? I have a MusicMan bass bridge that needs some serious attention. Do you recommend a company?

    You probably can't re-plate it for the cost of replacing it, unless you have some "original part" fetish. Search eBay for "musicman bass bridge". There are lots of them.
    "Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

      That part looks to be quite pitted so you need to pick a plater that does restorative plating. otherwise by the time the pits are removed the part will be too thin. It takes a lot of material removal to get a pitted surface good enough for plating and regular time-is-money commercial shops will just dress out the pits on an abrasive wheel and you'll be left with a shiny ornament. So It needs to be heavily copper plated first to fill in the pits and refinished back to the correct metal thickness before continuing with nickel and chrome.

        I checked around and this vintage bridge is very hard to find. The last one sold for $350! So I am going to stick with my plan of having it replated.
