Ugh I think I might need to change these pieces, especially the bridge one.





What do you guys think I should do?? Are there any other solutions than buying new saddle/ pickup thingy? I think my saddle's screwed though, pretty sure that it will screw up my sustain/tone or w/e

You can change it if you want. Just get replacement pickup rings (Make sure they're metal or the tone will change), and get the same kind of bridge, if you can. Otherwise just get a regular TOM.

Its only cosmetic - just shows you're guitar has actually been played.

Take a bigger body shot. Right now I think that copper colour looks really cool.

Probably but I'm afraid that it could really affect my tone/sustain. Well, it's only on one saddle though, but what if the other ones get like this aswell?

To post above, I just started to and that's when I saw that thing and in a rush, posted huge pics

well, if it keeps getting rapidly worse, look into replacing it. if not, it shouldn't hurt the tone or sustain at all.

It's just a little rub wear, maybe a little tarnish in there too.

There's no possibility of it ever even remotely affecting the tone/sustain/sound/anything, unless it begins to actually corrode and lose structure (e.g. old TOMs).

But I see none of that, only a few beauty marks and love rubs...

Maybe I will replace it, don't know yet . It makes me think it's cheap metal x.x

Haha well yeah, I just removed that saddle to see if it was damaged but it looks good actually. Doesn't look good but eh... at least it gives some character

i don`t know how many times i`ve said it but this is exactly what happens when you don`t wipe your guitar down after playing, that`s what sweat does

btw pickup rings and tune-o-matic bridges are relatively cheap if you do decide to replace them though promise yourself you`ll clean the guitar.
