Re: DW40

You mean WD40? Which screws? You are trying to loosen them?

Re: DW40

I would just be careful not to get any on the paint job as who knows what it might do to it. If you just want them to look shiny, take the screws out and polish them with a steel brush or something.

Re: DW40

I'm not sure as to why you would need to use WD40 on wood screws and the like. WD40 is for water displacement, it's not actually a lubricant as such. Plus i'd be concerned as to why you would need to use WD40 on these screws. can't say I've ever needed to use any WD40 or lubricant on the screws on my guitar before.

Really, if you just want to clean them wipe them down with a clean dry rag.

Re: DW40

Pull the screws out and take a wire brush or steel wool to them. That should get rid of rust.

Re: DW40

WD40 prevents rust, it does not however remove it. It will free, for example, rusted gears, chains, mechanisms etc. that have seized due to rust but it won't actually remove the rust.

Try moebius' suggestion, should work well.
