STUBBORN THUMB PRINTS ON TUNERS

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by guitardefector, Mar 22, 2010.


  1. Hello bass community. I have a used 90s Peavey Fury I bought last year. Amazing instrument, however I can't get a few set-in thumb prints to come out of the butterfly tuners. I tried chrome polish and lots of elbow grease but they just come back. Is there a certain acid or solution I can buy to remove them, and make them look new again?? I thought about dipping them overnight in jewelry cleaner but wasn't sure if that would make it worse? Any suggestion would be so helpful. Thanks.:help:

    Try a product called "White Diamond" polish. It is the best I have found & works great on all metals with out scratching.
