  1. i hope this is the right thread

    i am starting to get a tarnished/corrosion look on the bridge of my cort curbow and i was wondering what household products (if any i can use on it)

    thanks or any help
     
  2. You might be surprised how much of that is just grime from handling and such. The Cort Curbow's have a nice protective satin finish and it isn't likely that it's rust. I would try using a Windex type product first by spraying some on a paper towel and wiping it down. That will take care of the water soluble stuff and body oils. Then, if it isn't quite right, try a little Naptha for some of the tougher stuff. You might even want to de-string the bass to get to all of the nooks and cranny's. Don't worry about harming the finish with these products. They don't - in fact the Naptha will really get a lot of gunk off the body and fretboard that you never knew was there.
