I'm building a new guitar and I plan on installing a GFS solid brass bridge and tailpiece which will tarnish and oxidize over time from the sweat and oils in my hands. I think a tarnished brass bridge will look awesome on this guitar, but I want the tuners to get the same look naturally otherwise I've eventually end up with this brownish bridge and shiny gold tuners. So does anyone know of any tuners that are made out of raw brass?
Considering your hand will be on the bridge thousands of times longer than they'll be on the tuners, they'll tarnish at vastly different rates anyway.
Companies generally dont make raw brass parts. That GFS bridge is the first i have ever seen that didnt have a coating. I dont think you will find any brass tuners. They are usually just pot metal anyway.
I have only found open back tuners that are partially brass not all brass. And they are for classical guitars/acoustic guitars
