Anyone know of a reputable luthier or guitar company that can build a custom chrome guitar?

Matt Bellamy's Manson Bomber is orgasmic.

put the guitar in a big bin and light a yellow smoke bomb at the bottom and put the lid on. i think it should work.

bomber is not the best one due to the chroming going wrong. His chrome bomber is a better example. this is what the bomber should of been like.



And if im right, I think it's Sims customs that chrome for Hugh.

It was only the rivets that came from a plane, then Hugh airbrushed it purple to look like a burnt bomber.

any good custom guitar builders should be able to chrome plate a guitar.

Thats not really that fair to say. Chroming (even chrome painting) is very hard to do, and extremely hard to get to look good, plus its very expensive too.

They would have to take it or send it to a chrome plater.

I know if I was a guitar builder and someone wanted a chrome plated guitar I would make sure that they would get a chrome plated guitar, which is what I meant. If a guitar builder wants to be a good builder they should want to do what the customer wants, which would mean finding a way to get the guitar chromed. It'll be expensive, but the customer is paying for what he is getting, which should be a good quality chrome plated guitar.

that's why first bomber didn't turn out right but they still got a great guitar out of it.

The only reason the first bomber's chrome was screwed is because matt wanted the guitar quickly and they had no time to redo the chrome plating.
