Edge Pro bridge fading coroding Help!!

Hi

I have this RG1570 since 2010 and now the Bridge is corroding specially on the side where I rest my arm.

I can't seem to stop it from corroding.

Now I have a question if I put light coat of enamel paint on the corroded part will it affect the tone of the guitar?

If ever I will just have the whole bridge painted black I prefer a true black finish on hardware than cosmo black or powder cosmo.

What do you guys think

Re: Edge Pro bridge fading coroding Help!!

From an aesthetic point of view you would probably be better to get a new trem if you want it to look its best. Then wipe it down each and every time you play for longevity. The enamel paint will look odd at best and might not be great for the 'movable' parts. Otherwise take pride in the wear and tear - it shows how much you've played your guitar and in the process you've done an authentic 'relicing' job!

Re: Edge Pro bridge fading coroding Help!!

you can't stop it.. Just enjoy it and leave it like that. most people will tell you it looks better showing heavy signs of wear and tear. some people can get away with it for longer depending on how acidic their sweat is, some mess it up real quick.

the low E saddle on my jem7vwh got faded like 2 months after buying it brand new. I personally hate new looking guitars. it feels like a playstation rather than an old beat up friend

Yeah I sweat hard and I actually have to wipe it multiple times during a session and yet it corroded that bad specially the low E side.


BTW How much work needs to be done if I swap it with an Original edge I want this 1570 guitar customize and turned into Rg2570 with an Original Edge and D'Mazzion Norton and Tone Zone.

I painted it!! it looks crap but still better than the corroding and it helps protect the steel!!!

We must protect our guitars!!!

I find it easier to embrace the wear as a sign of my time put into the instrument. But hey, if you're happy with the bridge's look now, then congrats!
