coloring tele magnets black for stealth in blk pickguard

Postby Jedi Clampett » Fri Jul 28, 2017 10:08 pm

wondering if there is a way to color the tops of a tele neck pickup black with a black cover so that it is stealth in a black pickguard? Obvious you can see from close inspection, but with an uncritical eye from a distance would be invisible?

Is it currently covered with a chromed cover? I have some black, opaque lacquer that would probably work for that but you would probably need to sand the cover down to the bare metal.
