    I'm looking for black finished Fender factory styled bridge. Is there any manufacturer/brand who sell them with durable black finish? I don't really the paint to worn out early or corrode.

    Now, I see you don't happen to live in Europe, but Thomann sell those under their brand Harley Benton, pretty cheap too, to what equals just about 12$:
    I installed one in my Ibanez Mikro instead of the stock one.

    Can't say the black finish is too durable though, seems to be a pretty thin layer, at least dragging the saddle screws back and forth across the base plate when intonating will expose fine thin lines of the underlying brass color.

    Other than that the bridge itself seems to be great and sturdy quality, also as I said made of brass.

    Seems a better bridge than the stock Ibanez one, which I believe was chrome plated aluminum.

    You should be able to find bridges in a similar style and price class on Ebay, if you are interested.
