Your gold hardware has value right now. Once you strip it not only will you spend many hours ruining it, but it's then worth very little. Replace it with the right parts and then sell off the gold to recoup most of what it cost you. That would be the smart choice anyway.
No i dont want to strip it I like gold hardware but if i cant prevent tarnish my hardware will have no value after. I'll change parts when they all ruined! lol
Rich you mean gold hardware has actual gold plate or a plate that has a value? Or i understand something wrong
There is something else that bothers me on my new Jem... the middle pickup mounting screw heads are HUGE! Every time I try and trem pick on the high e I get caught up on that damn oversized screw head!
Why in the world did they use these big screw heads? And why right there in the middle of the pick path?
