How can I clean pickup and bridge?

 

There's bunch of sticky dust over the years.

 

I think I need some kind of oil... Will dunlop 65 body cleaner work? or should I use WD40 instead? (of course I won't SPRAY it onto guitar itself)

 

or should I use this gibson metal cleaner?

Though this KIT is unnecessarily expensive with things I don't need, and they have it online only...

 

 

It's this kind of pickup http://forum.gibson.com/index.php?/topic/18479-wd40-on-pickup-pups/

ps. One funny thing. I went to guitar center and sam ash, but they both don't have metal parts cleaner on store... I guess nobody really clean pickups... or maybe I'm just thinking wrong.

I just use household glass cleaner (Windex, etc,). If the bridge is really dirty I would remove it and give it a good scrubbing with an old toothbrush.

 

I assume this is a poly finished guitar, in which case if you get a little cleaner on the finish it won't hurt it. If nitro, you need to be more careful and not get any cleaners on the finish.

 

Generally speaking, I would NOT use any oil, WD40, metal cleaner, etc. on guitar parts.
