  • A little Rust in the pickups - Does it affect tone?

    Is it that bad? Is there a way to solve this?

          Dunno, but - hey! - maybe that's how Neil got this never-sleeping tone!

            Like TeleFromHelly said, it's pure mojo-i-zation.

            There probably is a physically measurable difference in the magnetic field and strength that's detectable with laboratory instruments but the effect on tone isn't perceptible to human hearing unless the oxidation is very widespread.

              +1 - no, it does not affect tone. Rory Gallagher's pickups were covered with rust and he did damn well with them!

                Brilliant perception, my dear Watson - what you said boils down to mojo in it's purest form.

                  I was gonna say, "it IS mojo."

                      i once buffed off a rusty pup with steel wool, I raised the studs and buffed 'em. clean up is a headache but used some sticky masking tape and it worked)
                      Then I Clear nail polished'em and , voila! rust proof. no tone loss and look great.
