I was hoping to scrounge up a few dollars sometime soon and begin a little project. Though, as opposed to the usual chrome, black, or gold hardware, I'd like to copper plate the hardware for a different look. One of my concerns is simply, will it keep it from working? Even simply on the outside of the tuners will it affect performance? On the bridge (and possible tailpiece) is intonation going to suffer? I'm also wondering if the texture of the hardware would affect the quality of the copper plating. Finishing and all that coinciding. If anyone's ever thought of the idea or has any information, I'd really appreciate the insight.
