    I want to put a different bridge on my PICT0084.JPG '92 MIM.
    I'm curious about grounding. Waiting for a large block, bridge, and saddles that are all black. Will the ground off the trem claw conduct to the strings?

    Since I don't have it yet I can't use my meter to check it out. Has anyone used one and if so did you have any grounding or or lack of? If so, how did you solve it.

    as long as its touching bare metal it should conduct. if it was chrome and then painted black, then maybe it wouldnt work, but im pretty sure youll be ok. I have an Ibanez RG that has cosmo black hardware and its got nothing special to make that connection.
