hat Niobium is not as hard as titanium.

The black finish on Titanium is called PVD coating (vaporised tungsten), they use it to coat pace makers, so that is extremely hard wearing.

Titanium used in the medical industry isn't pure Titanium that was what I was referring to as being an alloy.

The bridge on your Explorer will probably be made from Nickel. I would contact a plater (look 'em up in the yellow pages) to discuss how to remove/add new plating.

Chemical anodizing would be the way to go with that, itís what motorbike parts, and the like are coated with.

There is a company who do Titanium replacement bridges.

But I don't know if they do tail pieces as well.

They where reviewed in a guitar rag a couple of months ago.

I think Steves suggestion of chemical anodising is the way to go.
