Wear and Tear

Well, I noticed that the Cosmo Gold hardware on my RG5 is wearing off the trem where I rest my hand and palm mute the strings. Quite amazing since I seldom play that guitar and I appear to have non-corrosive sweat (my strings stay bright and clean and often last a good year!) and I wipe the instrument down with a cloth after playing it too!

Anyway, when more of the finish wears off I though that the shiny base metal would look better if it was matte. Any suggestions as to a good way of doing this without taking the gold off other areas?
