i would replate...  but im a chemistry head and have plated shift before...probably still have the chemicals in the lab... i mean shed...   diff peeps sweat is diff in ph values...   some have what brass and horn players called “acid hand”...  the electrolytic process of really acidic sweat on a bi-metallic metal plate for periods of time wrecks the plating...

the easiset thing to do is leave them alone...  what is it hurting?    or just take off the covers?  probably a bit of a plus, too...     replace covers or replace pickups... last resort, ditch the guitar and buy a new one...  not necessarily in that particular order, but then im looking at guitars again, so....
