What would my options be? I'm thinking about buying a black tusq nut, graphtech stringsaver saddles, hipshot bridge and maybe new tuners too.
Is buying a new bridge and replacing the saddles overkill? I'm leaning towards just replacing the saddles with the graphtechs but if it's not a huge deal and doesn't involve much work I'm open to replacing the bridge too.
In terms of a new nut; is this worth the upgrade? The only thing that irks me about the tusq nut is that it doesn't seem to come in black
Finally, with regards to a new set of tuners, what are my options? Anyone know how hard it would be to get them anodized?
TUSQ is available in black, but i dunno if the 7 string strat nut is. You might have to have one cut from a blank. a Nice nut coming from plastic is always a great upgrade. To get the tuners anodized, theyd have to be raw aluminum. Your only option there realistically is sperzel.
Also, fuck the string saver saddles. Plunkatone. Theyre definitely an upgrade from super cheap shitty hardware, but the stuff on the 7421s and 7621s was nice enough that i wouldnt bother with those. Elysian seems to have had some replacements made by hipshot that could be quite cool though, iirc
