    Default Cleaning gold hardware

    Hi everyone,

    I recently purchased a Jackson PC-1 guitar. It has a gold floyd rose and gold hardware. I have never had a gold floyd before. I understand that the gold can fade easily. Any suggestions on how to clean the gold so it won't fade as easy.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hank

    The PC-1 is a great guitar. I had one in the past. I just wish their body size was the full strat size vs. the 7/8ths size. At 6'4", it was a tad small.

    I've found when using gold hardware the best method is wiping it down after every set, practice, etc. Moist breath works to remove fingerprints. I don't use cleaner on the gold. If you wipe it down after every use, it should last a long time. Be careful with the Trem post. The plating can flake off if you're not careful.

    Good luck with the guitar.

    Scott,

    Thanks for the info. Yeah, I've wanted a PC-1 for a long time. Kind of stumbled across it on e-bay.

    Have a good day,

    Hank
