Stickmangumby Posted May 26, 2005 Report Share Posted May 26, 2005 (edited) I've got a pretty bad case of rusty pickups. This is an old and shoddy guitar, and I'm not keen on replacing them. I'm wondering if there is any safe and proven way to clean them. I've googled for a bit, and found a few posts mentioning using 'meradic acid', various rust removers for kitchen sinks, and other chemical compounds. Can anyone recommend a method? Is there a physical way of removing the rust? I actually mostly use the neck pickup, which is the most rusty. The three pickups on the guitar are identical... would I be best off just swapping the bridge pickup (least rusty) with the neck pickup? I'm just after a second opinion really. Thanks for your time Edit - apologies about the fuzzy images. I think the thumbnails are all you need really.
