So i have a chance to buy a set of gibson 57 and 57 plus set for $110 but they come with gold covers.... but my hardware is all chrome so i ask how i can manage to get the gold covers off and put nickel ones on? if this isnt possible can i rub the gold finish off or a chemical to take the finish off? thanks in advance
You should be able to just unsolder the gold covers and solder on some chrome ones. I think normal chrome covers go for about $15-$20 at GC
and how would you plan to solder? would you solder the edges or what?
mhmm. If I remember correctly, they're just soldered on there on the very bottom. You should be able to just solder where the old covers were soldered on. Or maybe a quarter-inch from where the original solder point was.
