It is a small market, you need a milling machine (big bucks). Like was said, would be a good side thing if you can afford the milling maching and the other necessary equiptment such as a band saw, upright belt sander, polishing machine, etc. and then hope you get enough business to pay for the equiptment. I was thinking the same thing, but couldn't justify the start up costs. Asking your question here is a great start for researching the market. Maybe try asking in other guitar forums to get a feel for the market also. What I have noticed is that only us Dead Heads appreciate the brass parts. Most like nickel and crome better because they dont tarnish.
live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly
t making parts just placed an order for stainless steel dual jackplate through a local machinist. Should come out looking nice. Does anyone else prefer steel look over brass? I may be able to order more if there is a demand for modded strat plates.
