Painted or anodized metal bicycle fenders

Looking for a company or bike shop that sells stainless steel or aluminium bicycle fenders (of this style) painted or anodized to match or closely mimic the factory color of a specific bicycle. Ideally in or around the Seattle metropolitan area, but not a requirement. Not looking for dyed plastic. Does a specific company or bike shop exist that offers this product or service?

I have a buzz, and its the bad kind.

Yesterday, I bought a new Fender Squire Affinity Stratocaster (not the Fat Strat). Tonight, I noticed that the guitar has a noticeable buzz anytime there are less than two pickups on. So, when I have the front and middle or middle and bridge pickups activated, everything is fine. However, if I switch to the front, middle, or bridge pickup by itself, the buzz is there.

How to make rubber contract or shrink

I have a set of rare rubber-grip Stratocaster knobs taken from a 30-year-old guitar. They look very similar to these. Problem is, the rubber grips have stretched out and are no longer tight around the knob. Is there any way to make rubber contract or shrink slightly so the grips fit correctly? [more inside]

What exactly is my guitar?

I purchased a used guitar several years ago (Pictures). I'd like some helping ID-ing it and finding more info about its various features. At first I thought it was a '72 American Fender Telecaster Custom, but a few things don't match up. The serial number only reveals its age range, nothing more. [more inside]

A minor fender bender. Will it ruin our lives?

About a month ago, my pregnant wife and I were in a minor fender bender on Rt. 202 in NJ. The woman before us stopped short, and we hit her going about 20 mph. This wasn't our fault. Their wa sa police car who made an erratic turn at the merge of the road that cause a few cars in front of us to swerve and or strop short at the time. The mini-van had a minor scratch and bump. Our jeep had no damage..... I don't know the full details of the law, but NJ law seems to say that the person who hits from behind is automatically at fault. Period. [more inside]

Sharp, twangy-sounding Telecaster pickups?

I just bought my first electric guitar (Fender Telecaster Mexican) and I absolutely love it. Ever the gearhead, I really want to upgrade the pickups to get a better, tailored to me sound. I've searched around to find some kind of guide, but I have come up empty. I'm looking for a really clean, sharp and twangy sound with less extra noisy buzz than I am getting now. Any suggestions/resources?
