Hey guys, I have some pretty ugly machines on my bass, and while I can't afford to get any new ones right now these would look a lot better if I could strip the laquer off them. Any ideas on what might take this crap off? Obviously I'd take them off the bass, so I could dip them in something, or I was thinking I could sandblast them. Would that be to rough on the brass? I'm tired of the bling-bling on my bass!
