tuning pegs are rusting


Recommended Posts

Hi Tim and welcome to the forum...


I am no expert and there are several people who have likely delt with this before but, here is what I think.


Rusting is not a good thing. First off, avoid using anything like WD40 on them. Some good 3 in 1 oil will help get them turning better. To clean the metal, you could try to use an old toothbrush with some metal cleaner on it and carefully scrub them up a bit. Avoid getting anything on the finish of the guitar though. To do it right you should dismantle the tuners and then try cleaning them with a metal polish.
