    I can't find a gold badass 5 so I am thinking of buying a chrome one and powdercoating it gold. Since I build custom motorcycles, I powdercoat stuff anyway. Anyone see a problem with resonance etc with powdercoat?
     
  2. Hi.

    Powder coating has its places and uses, IMO instrument bridges aren't one of them.

    Since You have all the necessary connections, why not just re-plate it?
    Unless You're going for that PC-look that is.

    BTW, Bestbassgear seems to hae them in gold:

    I knew a guy when I was younger who painted his whole bass with dayglo orange spray paint. Hung it from a clothesline and put two full spray bombs worth of paint on it. When he plugged it in it sounded kinda thin until he put fresh (unpainted) strings on it. Once he did that it sounded the same as it did before he painted it.
     
  5. Hi.

    Dang, that would've been too easy.

    Evilbay?
