I was playing yesterday and after rehearsal I wiped the neck and strings of my SG and noticed that there are signs of corrosion on the exposed pole pieces.

It's a 2007 limited edition Special with a natural swamp ash body.

I don't sweat excessively, as I know that this can cause strings to deteriorate - some people needing to change more frequently than others.

Is there a "cure" for this and how should I prevent it from occuring again?

All suggestions happily considered.
It's an opinion. It's subjective. And I'm right, anyway.

Thank you - I hadn't noticed as there has been no difference in output or sound.
I usually only play it once a week for a few hours, I stick to my LP or an acoustic other times. It is the most frequently used guitar I have with exposed pole pieces, though.

Handily enough my office has just kindly donated a rubber/eraser for the task.
Nice of them.

It's probably a matter of (not that long a) time before the guitar looks naturally and organically "road worn" anyways...


My Tele looks like it's about 30 years old and I only built it in '08.

how do you define a guitar for a female?
how about one that whines and has trouble with feedback?

Face it, they ain't museum pieces - they are there to be played.


Sick of people who get erally anal over their kit. Especially when it ain't that fancy.
