Not all LFRs are pieces of crap... and this is a question i have been wondering about myself.

Does that answer your question?

Mind you, that's just designs on the bar and fine tuners, not the whole bridge, but it's a start!

If the guitar is black, paint it magenta. If the guitar is white, paint it hot magenta.

sorry that im breaking the double post rules lol. the guitar is a ltd alexi 200 a white one and im thinking about putting a emg - 81 (white) active pickup in it so it will look really cool

You should be able to do it to the whole system, if you take the whole system apart and coat each peice individually. Otherwise, the coating could get in the cracks between moving parts and lower it's ability to function.

Dude, leave some contrast! Paint the base and saddle blocks white, the saddles black, and the bar black, and leave the black pickup ring

Just keep a pic of an assembled one, dude You should be able to figure out what parts go where. Just make sure you put the right saddles int eh right place and the right blocks in the right saddles or you'll screw it up.

really well it just looks deceving then. what about locking tuners lol haha coating them? just the outside not the cogs and crap, thats do-able?

I'd give you a less than 10% chance of it being a good, test-of-time mod. The powder coat will take space and I am sure make things not fit right. Also, I bet it will wear off in the saddles making the strings go out of tune weird for a while, then once enough is worn away I bet it would look goofy. If you can do it yourself and don't care about the guitar then why not, but if you are wanting this to be a solid mod on a primary guitar, I wouldn't bother.

make sure you take it apart and coat each piece seperately. but there are some spots i would try not to get paint on. like the knife edges and any threads on bolts. but it should work pretty good.
