hey all

I was wondering if any of you knew if plating on hardware affects tone and sustain?

I have some cheap chinese hardware and the chrome looks horrible. Would removing it affect tone and sustain, particularly if its the bridge and saddles?

Also, does anyone have any good techniques for removing chrome plating? I've been using sandpaper to moderate success.

That would in no way affect tone... If anything, it would improve it because it adds mass to the bridge.

alright, thanks mate
