    The problem with logos is what if you have a guitar with more than one pickup, and some have a logo and some don't. I have two guitars like that right now.

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

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

    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.)

    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!

    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.

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

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

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