How to Remove white "Dimarzio" logo from Evo pickup??

Hi All,

I have a Dimarzio Tone Zone and an Evo pickup from a Charvel guitar. Both are black and have the name Dimarzio printed on them in white. I'd like to remove the logo without altering the appearance of the pickup, so that the pickups are all black...is there a solution or compound that can be used to do this?

Thanks,

Rob

Little strip of electrical tape? Not permanent, won't affect anything.

Lightly scrape with a razor blade. Then, use a black Sharpie to cover anything left.

Man and I thought that I had OCD, lol.

Spray, magic marker or touch up pen for car.

Sell them internationally for more than they're worth and get new ones!

Just watch with the goo gone that it doesn't scratch / smear the rest of the plastic on the pickup.

Use a mild polish. I have heard toothpaste actually works.

if you are unlucky with the paint thinner it may destroy the surface and make it look dull
