    I have some oxidation/corrosion on the leads of an pickup. The bass sounds fine, but I was wondering if there was a way to clean them up?

    Thanks,

    You can use some steel wool on those leads. Then you can apply some clear fingernail polish on them so that it doesnt happen again.

    That is what Larry @ Aero Instrument Pickups told me. It works great.
