Hipshot Hardtail?

Hey!

I`ve just purchased Hipshot hardtail bridge for my guitar in black finish. My guitar isn`t finished yet, but i decided to try the bridge. I put the string into position, and the string just sweeped away the black finish from the saddle. :D

I wander is it common for black finished hardware, is it only Hipshot lame finishing, or is it something else?

It is not a big deal, but it sucks!

Any advice?

I had the same problem. They use paint on those bridges, no powdercoating or plating. Like Prostheta said, strings will hide it anyway. Even with powdercoating, strings will get through the finish after a while.

You will have the exact same problem with any hardware that's been painted.
