ok ive had my schecter diamond series for around 5 years now, just a question on the pickups..

1) the pickups are rusty, should i get new ones?

2) does rust effect tone?

3) might sound obvious but does the quality of the tone degrade after a time?
Actually, yes to 3, though you are talking minimum 30-40 years, when cheaper magnets begin to lose some of their strength.

those really dont matter. but if you had sh** all over ur hundred year old pickups you wouldnt change em if they sounded amazing. tone is all ear. decide what you like.
