    Hi. I am writing in regards to the hardware used on my music man stingray bass. All this company makes is chrome hardware! I think this is possible but I'm not for sure. Does anyone know if ( and who) could take my tuning keys and bridge and maybe convert them into a black finish? I mean I know this can be done. Thanks

    There was an Onyx version of the Sterling bass that had all black hardware; maybe they have some leftover parts from those.

    I believe that the tuners are basic Schaller BMs, which you can certainly get in black (although you need a 3+1 set). You might be able to sand blast the bridge and powder coat it black.

    Schallers are reversible, so you don't have to look for a 3 + 1 set; just reverse the one tuner and you're set.
