    Hello all,

    I've got a set of gold Schaller tuners and I'd like to strip the gold finish off.

    Can anyone tell me how to do it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Get a hold of a plater, preferably a jewelry plater and have them strip the gold off. Yes, you can have it bead blasted off, but then you are going to get the gears filled up with the beads, and the beads are glass. Or just buy what you need.
