    Powder coating guitar saddles

    I'm converting a RG2228 to a swirled green and black version. I want powder coat the saddles. I've chatted to a company about getting the saddles coated but, they are concerned that after coating the parts won't be able to move. Any advice from someone mental enough to powder coat their guitar parts?

    I'd like to know, fancy poweder coating te saddles on my UV From Hell to fire engine red, I'm guessing they're referring to the saddle being able to bend so the fine tuners work? Maybe just need to somehow knock out the pin that holds the two pieces together so they can e powder coated as seperate pieces, then reassemble?

    I'd say you'd need to separate the parts as James suggested, then be prepared to scrape away some of the coating from the areas that interface. Otherwise, you should be ok.
