  • removing logo

    I'm sure it can be done, but can it be done without cosmetically damaging the pickup?

    Not trying to pull a fast one on anybody, I just don't like the look of logos on my pickups.

    Acetone works as long as you use it very sparingly on just the logo.

    EDIT: I don't like logos on the pickups either

      1,000 grit sandpaper will remove it and then use a felt block with a little buffing compound to restore the shine.

        Brasso also works. Some people have reported that gritty toothpaste will work, too.

          Hey Trey. Are you sure? Aren't bobbins plastic. IIRC, acetone eats plastic for breakfast. Been awhile since I used it, but just askin'.

            I've used Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish with a q-tip. I'd avoid acetone, as it tends to destroy plastics and could ruin the pickup, as well as sand paper, as you'd have to re-polish the surface after the fact, which is trick if there are pole pieces and such sticking out of the pickup.

              Been off for a while and just logged in and saw this!

              it worked on all of the ones I’ve tried! 2 Black Screamin Demons, a White JB and 2 White Hotrails.

              Still have the Screamin Demons and the plastic is there!

                Hey Trey. Good to see ya again. Hope all is going well.

                Good to know about the acetone, but I don't personally use it. I like my logo's.

                  Good to be back and thanks! All is well-busy!

                  Eh, I’m weird—I don’t like logos on accessories/parts...I assemble/build my own guitars and don’t put a logo on the headstock either (only did 2, one with Charvel for a build I did for my dad based off of the guitars he played when he was in a band and one with a cool chrome Warmoth logo that a forum member was so kind as to send me.)

                    For me, it depends on what it says. I like "Fender" on some of my Strats. Not so much for "Johnson" on another. I can still remember, 20-something years ago, the flack I took for saying I was playing with my Johnson.

                      Totally can understand that! Crazy you got flack for that, it’s how it sounds and plays that matters...not the logo.

                        They meant it as a joke.

                              I take a lot of flak for playing with my Johnson in public too. Even spent a night in the hoosegow for it.
