Hello everyone I bought a Squier Classic Vibe Tele Butterscotch Blonde at the end of this year's April. I am shocked and so sad that the knob plate and the neck pickup are alread losing the brightness they had when I had just bought the Tele. I'd like to ask you guys for tips on how to clean this hardware pieces and maybe try to get it look back close to mint condition. It is is important to notice that I would not be sad or writing this If I was a careless guitar player. I wipe the whole instrument with dry cloths every time, including the knobs, knob plate and the pickups. I also keep it in a gig bag. I just dont' know what happened, really. It is worth mentioning that while I'm not careless when it comes to cleaning my guitars, I live very very close to the beach. 2 streets, actually. It is a major problem with furniture, electronics and etc. Maybe that was the problem. But then again, since I keep it in a gig bag all the time when I'm not playing, it is very weird. Thanks!
