I'm planing to build a Telecaster with 'mainly' Stainless Steel hardware; exceptions to the Stainless theme being the neck Pickup Cover, which has to be Nickel, the Tuners, also Nickel and Jack Plate, which will have to be Aluminium (the closest to Stainless Steel). Now the Technical Question! A Stainless Bridge would look the part, but how practical is this? I saw this one on the Philadelphia Luthier Tools site: Please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the 'Original' Fender type Mild Steel bridge an integral part of the bridge pickup sound? I think I vaguely remember reading this 'somewhere'? If so, would a Stainless Steel bridge have an adverse affect upon the sound of the bridge pickup? If so, how?
