Oh No! Frets Tarnishing on my 10th (sobs)
I just took my Jem10th out of the display case on the wall (don't worry guys, it gets played).
For all those of you worrying i didn't play it, you'll be less pleased to know it came down to be cannibalised - I took a spring out of the 4 for a UV777BK that I was bringing back to good setup for the buyer, plus point is I prefer 3 springs and got to steal the spring lock from the UV!
Aaaanyway, I put it back, and took a moment to gaze over it; and the frets are tarnished!
How has this happened? it came pearly from Mr Harris, and I don't want to be polishing frets on inlaywork of this calibre regularly.
Its in my living room, I live in Scotland, we're having an amazing (but Scottish) summer; i.e. temperatures of 20-23 C but the occasional heavy rainfall. I leave the windows open all the time as generally its too hot.
I'm probably being an idiot here; I don't want to ruin one of the best guitars of all time through lack of knowledge.
Should i close the windows? What should i do.
Help as always appreciated......
