oil under rhythm/treble switch plate?

Recommended Posts

So, I just removed my rhythm/treble switch plate on my 2001 studio, and there was some light oil underneath it. The plate was not original, so I have to assume the person who did this had a reason. Maybe to keep it from sticking to the nitro cellulose finish when it was to be removed the next time? Has anyone seen or done this before? Should I clean it off or just leave the oil when I put the new plate on?

I think this could have been left from using a contact cleaner. To avoid this, I leave the switch cavity back open for a while after using some, put a cloth below it and lay the guitar on its back for a few hours. So I never have oily residues between switch washer and finish.

I've never left a switch plate on one for more than five minutes. If I don't know what the switch is doing we are all in trouble.

Damn - is it legal to play rhythm using the treble pickup [scared]

 

It also still is unclear to me what the center position could mean - rhythm and treble, or neither rhythm nor treble [biggrin]
