Hi UG,

This is my dad's Shergold from the '70s.


We're recording a CD and I was wondering whether the rusty pickups will affect the sound?
If so, what can be done about it?

Much love,
WDS
I fell asleep on my arm once, scariest thing that ever happened to me. I thought it was kill.

I don't think it will affect the sound, odds are only the surface of those screws are rusted, so they should pickup the strings the same
I'M FAT!!!!

As said above, we cant see whether the magnets itself are rusty or just the screws. If its only screws, that should not be a problem for you.

Plug in and find out? Even if they are rusted, you might love the sound :P
If it sounds crap to you, you know you need to do something
