    I figured I would kill three birds with one stone, I am looking for a matte black tune-o-matic bridge/ matte black volume knobs, and matte black locking one side machine heads. What brands and sites do you guys recommend me? I have searched but have found little to no satisfying results, so I would love some help. Thanks :cheers:

    Check out Warmoth.com

    I don't know if they have matte black tune-o-matics, but they have black.

    Gotoh makes guitar parts with the X-Finish which looks kinda matte-finish-like. Not sure if they make 7 string parts. You could try messaging them and see if you could get one made.

    Sperzels aren't especially shiny, and they will make them in black.

    Is it flat? And are those the ones primarily used on Agile? If so then I would love them.

    Sperzels are kind of expensive, but they are awesome.

    I have never seen a satin black tune-o-matic though. If price isn't a huge factor you may be able to use graphite saddles and give the rest of the bridge a few coats of satin poly.

    You could also use ebony knobs, and give them a satin finish.

    I've got black Sperzels, they're matte black, order them in black, you should get the matte ones, they hold the tuning so well, and make string changes a breeze

    Sperzels were it, now just the matter of finding where singles or a 7 string set are sold and then I can order them.
