    I have a Gretsch branded B6. I want to color it. Unsure if I want to go with powder coating or Anodizing. How much of them are Aluminum is the deciding question I guess.

    Powdercoating is electrically adhered, baked on paint, and very durable. The Bigsby would have to be totally taken apart, and you still might have clearance issues due to the paint thickness.
    Anodizing is color injected in to soft metals like aluminum and not likely to cause any clearance issues. It's pretty durable as well.
    You'd do best in hunting down an automotive source for either service.
