Why stop there? From I understand, every so often a whammy bar can use a good lube as well. And don't get me started on the truss rod.

Ah...screws are pretty damn easy to find man, it should be no problem at all actually. I was under the impression that your WHOLE nut was rusted.

Man this thread is starting to sound so wrong

Re: my nuts are rusting!!!

I'm not very sure if it's just your nut per se that may be defective.

It could be due to a myriad of factors, most probably the humidity levels.

If it really bothers you just a get a new one, I don't think it costs that much, plus on #bay there's tonnes of replacement ibanez parts right now.

Re: my nuts are rusting!!!

Dude if it's just slight superficial surface wear it may be more viable for you to polish it out with some metal polish, be careful though if it's powder coated or plated the colour may come off.

Two months is a wee bit crazy for nuts rusting

A little care, like simple wiping and polishing goes a long way man.

Re: my nuts are rusting!!!

2 months ? Where do you live, or is it really humid where you live ? You might want to check into a de-humidifier if so. You don't want the humidty to be over 40%. A hygrometer can measure that(humidty).
