Ok, so I currently have two basses, my homemade p-bass which I use for gigging and recording, and myy neck-thru j copy, which is my backup. Before I had the p, I put a good amount of money into the j, part of which was repllacing the stock gold high mass bridge (looks similar to a badass) with a black high mass carvin. When I built the p, I wasn't sure how it would turn out, if it was going to be my main bass or just a cool instrument to have around, so I didn't spend a ton on hardware, and used an old crappy bridge I had sitting around the house. So now, as I'm using the p almost exclusively i'd like to put the good carvin bridge on that, and put the stock bridge back on the j. I know I'll have to shim the neck on the p, etc, my question is, the only thing I don't like about the old gold bridge is that its gold, even though I rarely use it anymore, i'd like to still have all black hardware on the j. Also, since I don't hardly use it anymore and the budget is looking a tad tight, I don't want to drop the cash on a new bridge. Can I just disassemble the old bridge, sand the pieces a bit and spray paint it (heresy?), or is there a proper painting technique I should go through?
