Clean the gold

Hi, I own a JEM7VWH and after 1 year of use, I can see some black things on the gold... how can I clean up the gold pease?

My best guess without seeing the guitar is the gold is simply wearing off.

It's just a thin plating and since you actually PLAY the guitar it's going to be subject to wear.

I have cosmo black plating on one of my guitars and it started to show wear within a few months. Cosmo black is known for wearing off quickly though.

Post a pic or two if you can so we can see if it's wear or tarnish. If it's tarnish, go to a jeweler and ask for something gentle to clean gold.

If it's wear, you'll just have to live with it, sorry.
