I am starting the build process on another partscaster. Looking for some suggestions on where to acquire aged nickel Tele hardware. Standard stuff for the most parts, bridge will be a half ashtray sorta deal.
I just put a Rutters bridge on one of my Tele's, the one he machines out of steel, its nice. I'd like to try something different if possible but he does have some nice half and chopped bridge options, which is what I'm after.
I was offered a little help from some of the local forum members who have done it and had good results, I'll take them up on it. I've been shopping around with the sales and making lists, finally placed four orders last night so all the hardware should be coming in nickel.be careful with the muriatic, its nasty stuff. Also stuff in the stores is around 30%, i would dilute to 10% with water. Also have a bottle of windex or a bucket of baking soda close by to neutralize.
