    Matte black hardware

    Hello Guitarded friends! Love the new Lukes recently with the black hardware. I have a pearl purple Luke 2 that I'd like to change the chrome tuners and bridge to the black. Does EB sell these separately? Or does someone have a salvage guit that could sell me. LMK

    I'm positive on the JP side of things, but you can always shoot them an email and inquire. Keep your expectations on the low side though =P

    I most likely will swop with one my newer Lukes. It's a shame EB isn't a bit more accommodating.

    They sure do. I've recently emailed MM CS about the same thing and they sent me the product numbers and a direct contact to my local distribution. So, ping MM CS and they'll sort you out ... as they always do.

    We are referring to selling bridges separately, which they unfortunately do not. The rest of the hardware can be found pretty much anywhere because they are not of the EBMM brand.

    You can buy the bridge separately from MM directly through your local distributor ... however you need to send back your existing bridge as it is a proprietary unit/design.

    They don't sell different colour bridge than the one that comes with the guitar.

    Example: I want to install a black bridge on a JPXI, which comes with chrome bridge. That is not possible.

    To me, that is respected, but not accommodating.

    MM doesn't want mongrel guitars out there.

    They will repair any instrument to the state it left the factory. This allows you to replace any broken proprietary hardware, but not swap it for something else.

    A JPXI with black hardware instead of chrome, is not a mongrel guitar.

    Or any other EBMM guitar for that matter.

    Also, custom artist models that are built upon the artist's personal preferences are not mongrel guitars.

    And let's not forget that with enough cash you can bypass EBMM's tactic. Simply buy a guitar that has the hardware you need and install it on another EBMM guitar, or a custom made one.

    This tactic of theirs is in essence obsolete. It only inhibits people of limited financial capacity to customize their instrument, but definitely not the ones with deeper pockets.
