New can get new nuts from your local Ibanez dealer or even faster from Rich (Ibanez rules banner above).

Re: my nuts are rusting!!!

Rust isn't covered by warranty.. But if they rust so much that you can't even use it, then talk to the people you bought it from. Light rusting isn't covered as it's bound to happen sooner or later. It's like buying a lightbulb and having it burn out in 2 weeks.

Realistically, just check with the place you bought the guitar from either way. It's likely there's nothing they can do about it or they could just try to clean it for you. If not, just buy new ones. Is the WHOLE nut rusted or just the screws for the pads that are rusting?

(hehehe.. you said nuts..)

2 months ? Where do you live, or is it really humid where you live ? You might want to check into a de-humidifier if so. You don't want the humidty to be over 40%. A hygrometer can measure that(humidty).

Re: my nuts are rusting!!!

Dude if it's just slight superficial surface wear it may be more viable for you to polish it out with some metal polish, be careful though if it's powder coated or plated the colour may come off.

Two months is a wee bit crazy for nuts rusting

A little care, like simple wiping and polishing goes a long way man.

Re: my nuts are rusting!!!

I'm not very sure if it's just your nut per se that may be defective.

It could be due to a myriad of factors, most probably the humidity levels.

If it really bothers you just a get a new one, I don't think it costs that much, plus on #bay there's tonnes of replacement ibanez parts right now.
