i recently dug out my old strat copy which has been sitting in my garage for a while and the white pickguard is starting to turn yellow... it looks like shit (especially next to the controls which are still perfectly white)

is there any way i can get it white again?

You might want to try (Edit) nail polish REMOVER or some type of acetone. Maybe even, if you let it sit in some weak acid, a little stronger than vinegar, but not too dangerous; it might help.

But dude, really, aging happens. It's cool and makes your guitar unique.
Unless you purposely do it like some guys here on U.G.

aha thanks!


i just find it odd because this guitar is only about 3-4 years old and until last year it was perfectly white

ah well it's a piece of shit anyway (brand new it's about 150$ - Jay Turser BTW) but it will make a nice customizing project

EDIT: i just realized that i called it a "old strat copy" - well i didn't mean really old, i just meant older than my Ibanez
