hi , my epiphone les paul custom has a gold finish on its pickups and the recently the finish has begun 2 fade. Is there anything i can do 2 prolong the life of the gold finish ? Please help
You can buy new pickup covers. They're like $9 each and all you have to do is take out the pickup and replace the cover.
Main setup:

ESP Eclipse
PRS Torero SE
Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster head, 2x12 cab
FX: Crybaby Slash Wah, Ibanez TS9x, Mesa Boogie Throttle Box, Boss TU-2, BF-3, DD-3, PS-6, RC-3, etc.
There is some gold restoring stuff, and its liquid. All you have to do is dip the covers in that, and it should keep em gold for awhile. If you can't find em, then just get maybe Gibson gold covers.
that hppens to me too...i dont bother doesnt affect the sound so...
My Stuff:
Gibson Les Paul Custom
Gibson straps
Dunlop straplok
Planet wave cables
Zoom multi effects
