Does anyone have a method for removing gloss from...say a black tele bridge? Im shooting for a matte black finish. I'm thinking about using steel wool, but I'm hoping someone has a more efficient method.

If you've got a drill, place a sponge polishing pad on it, and use rubbing compound and go to town. You have to move the pad around so you don't burn thru the finish, but that will do a consistent finish. Be careful not to let it go too long, or it will either polish it up again or burn thru the coat.

Another method would be to wet sand it w/ a 600-800 grit finish.
