Hey guys. I just picked up my bass after 10 years and the pick guard is warped outwards. I found a couple ways of fixing it, but its celluloid on a plastic back so I'm a little worried about it catching fire. I know using the sun would be safe but I was hoping for something a little quicker. I imagine a heat gun would be the quickest way of doing it. I just need confirmation I'm not gonna burn down my house lol. I also am wondering if anyone has any advice on removing rust from the screws and strings but that isn't really all that important since I had it setup right before I stopped playing. If I should of bumped the old thread with this question I'm sorry. Please don't ban me.
