Nashville Plating Service Luthier Reviews

I sent Nashville Plating Service a gold armrest for re-plating. What I got back was an armrest of a much lighter gold color. I emailed them I got a story back from them that was not credible.

I found a gold plating place locally where I live and they did a much better job, much darker gold. I had to pay twice too.

Do you self a favor and don’t bother with Nashville Plating for gold armrest for re-plating. The result I got stunk !!

Just received a flange I had nickel plated by Nashville Plating Service, the results are incredible. Hard to believe this is the same flange! This was an old, crummy looking part and now looks absolutely perfect...I really can't praise Ron Satterfield's work enough. Very affordable and got it back fast, I hope to do business with them again soon.

I just received the nickel plated parts for my Ome plectrum banjo. It was my first experience dealing with Ron Satterfield (Nashville Plating Service) and his work came out absolutely flawless! The turnaround time was very fast and the price was less than I expected. It is obvious that Ron takes a great deal of pride in his work and his attention to detail is evident on the finished project. The next time I need metal plating for one of my instruments, Nashville Plating Service will be my first and only call!

This is the second complete pot assembly that Ron Satterfield of Nashville Plating Service has done for me. The first was in nickel... ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS... turnaround time was 10 days.

This time I decided to have an entire pot assembly plated in 24 KT gold. First let me say that I put everything in the mail on Saturday morning 10/16. Today is Thursday 10/21 and it arrived today. An email followed within minutes from Ron telling me to check the mail, that my parts had arrived. He cut the time in half from my first order. That kind of turnaround from VA to TN and back is way over the top in my opinion!!!! Everything including the little bracket screws were perfect, gorgeous and Ron evidently spent some time buffing everything out prior to plating. His packing job was superb to ensure everything arrived in tact and also to make sure all parts arrived complete. This is going to be one gorgeous banjer thanks to Ron Satterfield of Nashville Plating.

If anyone is looking for some plating to be done... I highly recommend Nashville Plating Service. Ron continues to amaze me with the quality of his product and his exceptional customer service!!!!!!!!!!!
