1 RockabillySurf 2 years ago Hey everyone...I’ve decided to sell my SSLVO on Reverb to buy this vintage orange 5420 from Sweetwater and also get a nice acoustic. https://www.sweetwater.com/...But I love nickel hardware, not gold.I’ve read that the gold plating is just that: thin plating that a simple metal cleaner can take right off. But while it’s easy to remove tuners, knobs, and stuff like that, how would I remove the cover and poke pieces from these blacktop filtertrons? I’ve never done that. Does the cover just slide off once I get it out of the guitar, and can I I screw poke pieces and put them back in later with no issues?Thanks!
