1 Frenchcorvette 8 months ago Hey guys, I am new here and would like to ask you a question that might looks a bit strange.Amoung a few guitars I am the happy owner of a 1963 Gretsch Corvette. I noticed that on this guitar and none of my others from other brands the strings are getting rusty and I mean really rusty in a few, lets say weeks not to say days time especially on the 3 unwounded ones. The scratch plate itself was kind of greasy.I checked the electronic and noticed one of the original pots was king of durty, covered with some king of yellow grease I thought came from corrosion or humidity that might explain then the rusty strings.Changed that pot to a new one, thought the problem was solved ... but rust is back on the string and I really fear tetanus !!!I know, I know, all this looks strange but once again I dont have this problem one any of my other guitars. Does anyone faced the same problem ? Found a solution ?Thanks for the help.Cheers from France !!!Vincent.
