So i own an Ibanez K7 (as some of you might remember), bought it about a year ago and have been in love ever since. It's a 01 model with Dimarzio D-Sonic in the bridge and the original PAF 7 in the neck. The color is firespark blue (love it!) The main problem im having (and have had for some time now) is that there's bits of rust in the bridge, mostly only in the tailpieces (don't know if that's the right word, what i mean is the parts you put the strings in) and i've been thinking about replacing them with new ones (of the same color, obviously). The closest ibby dealer to me said it was possible, but each piece would cost me at least 20 ...Sounds quite much for a small piece of metal, so, is there a cheaper way to get ibby spare parts? (if not, i shall go with the horrible price) The second problem im having... like i said the rust is mostly in the pieces im about to replace, but there's a tiny line of it in one of the edges of the bridge, it's small, for now, but i really hate that it's there in the first place. What would be the best way to make sure it doesn't "grow" in there, and is there ways to get rid of it? Yes i do keep my instrument clean and wipe away sweat etc. after playing, but i can't stop sweating, right? ...The rust was there already when i bough the guitar, but it's gotten worse over time and me playing the guitar a lot. My other guitars have no such problems. And at last but not least, im thinking about swapping the pickups for a pair of BKP's. I have heard nothing but good of them. Probably miracle man for the bridge, not sure about neck yet. Any opinions on that? Any experiences of MM in a mahogany bodied 7 ? Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance, if anyone gives a helpfull reply.
