Hi there,

today i bought an "old" Gibson Nighthawk ( 1996 ) from a friend of mine. The problem is that he is an ambitious smoker and now the white plastic parts of the guitar turned into a typical yellow-brown.


Are there any possibilities to remove this colour ( it's nicotine I guess ) ?

Thanks in advance.

Nope. Yellowed plastic is going to stay that way. Most people think it looks pretty cool, though. Once you get rid of the smell you might like it.

thanks for your fast answer!

i think it's not that bad looking and it fits to the golden hardware.

White plastic typically yellows as it ages. It probably would have happened regardless of your friend's smoking. You could still clean it up with some polish or wax. It may reduce some staining. I'd rather have my guitar smelling like carnauba than tobacco.

thats exactly what i'm going to do.
i'll clean the guitar so that it doesn't smell anymore.
i guess this is enough


thanks for your help!
