I've never heard of a guitar that rusted in one month, I've left my acoustic out of its case for a few months and I rarely play it. Shame that its a gibson though.

lol
get the Dunlop corrosion inhibitor. It goes into ur case and prevents metal parts from rusting. it wont reverse what has already ovvured but greatly prevents future rust from building up. Ive tried it on my les paul and it aworks like a charm. it helps in preventing string rust as well. so its a win win situation. plus its cheap, like 5 bucks give or take

If your vegetarian girl harasses you about eating meat, snap back with, "Eating more entirely defenseless plants that provide us with oxygen?"

That'll shut that bitch up faster than two black eyes.

Maybe moisture from the air could get in but not out, hence the rust. . .

I love your username, but how does a Gibson rust that quick? Actually the better question is: why did you not play guitar for a month?
#11
The rust has probably been caused by corrosives in the atmosphere or sweat from your hands (or a combination of both), if you dont wipe the parts down after use then you can get rust. You also have to watch where your guitar is stored, if it is stored in a humid/warm place then this can accelerate the corosive action

To get rid of the corossion you have two options. The first is to take the parts off and soak them in penetrating oil (3 in 1 oil), once they have soaked over night give them a light rub down with a steel brush and wipe the excess oil off.

The other option is to replace the rusted parts with new parts.

But... isn't Gibson hardware made from gold? Or other quality metals? That don't rust?
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

If its a custom then the hardware is gold, but on most standards the harware is chrome plated. Chrome rusts is its not treated properly or its put in the wrong conditions.

But is it really gold, or gold flavored beverage?

you seriously must have spilt something on it. I've got guitars that over a decade old that I don't even have a case for and their hardware has never rusted.
