I got rust from palm muting and sweat. I posted a bulliten on this before asking how to get the rust off. And I used "3 in 1" and a brush and it didn't work. So is my bridge stained now? I think I treated it too late. Any thoughts?


Edit: sorry, I don't know how to put the pictures directly on here

RG321, eh? You could probably sand it down with sandpaper, but the oxidation will just come back, so there isn't a lot of point in taking it off.

but I don't want this to develop into something that will mess my guitar up in the future

the rust makes it look kinda old-ish. and from a disance, its probably not that noticeable. and its only on the top 2 saddles, so if it is noticeable, ppl wont see it too much. If it gets rly rusty, like to where its red and flaky, then u have a problem.

It probably will keep coming back. Ibanez uses cheap ass parts on their lower end models. Mine is hardly 6 months old and its rusting. Try to polish it up with a little WD40 or 3-36. Also wipe it down after playing. As far as damage to your guitar, it will only do damage if it rusts through, which probably will take years and years to happen. your guitar looks fine. I wouldn't midn what little rust it has, besides trying to polish it like I suggested.

If you are concerned, replace the saddles.

You could probably get a whole set from Guitar fetish for $30 or so.

Hey it's your guitar. If it was mine and I was worried about it then I'd replaced them. Replacing the saddles is easier than replacing your bridge.
