    I have a Squier right now and live by the beach and dont know if the salt air is what is rusting the pickups or if its just because its so cheap. Has anyone else had this problem? And do the pickups that cover the metal pieces sound worse, or the same?:confused:

    regardless of the forum ;) youi can safely clean your pick-ups metal spots using mothers metal polish. you can get rust/tarnish/regular everyday grime off easily with it. it's like $8 at your local automotive store...
