i bought a brand new hellraiser FR around 2-3 months ago and theres rust appearing on the locking nut and parts of the tremolo is there anything i can do to stop this ?
and should this even be happening?
its stored in a hardcase in a room with average humidity.
any help would be appreciated

steel wool. I think it looks cool, it it doesn't interfere. My PRS pickups have a sprinkling of rust

wont that take the black finish off the hardware ?

ah yeah it has black finish. It will damage it. This is just me, but I like aged looking guitars. I love my friends LP with gold finish that is rubbing off.

You get what you pay for.

Cheap hardware won't hold up like the good stuff.

Everyone is so into the "worn" look these days that someday a mint condition (insert frequently reliced guitar) with it's original electroincs will be worth a ton

I only like them if they are actually old, and they've been in my possession all the time.

I would never buy a guitar pre-reliced!!

And I like my things stock aswell.
