Protection for nickel

Hi guys!

I've always had a serious problem with nickel hardware - particularly the nickel cover on a bridge humbucker. I susally wind up resting my palm there, and within a few days a brand new cover will be tarnished. It must be my own pH or whatever.

Is there any product that will protect the finish from this?

Thanks
Tom

I like how nickel ages... I guess you could coat it with a thin coat of laqcuer?

I'm mot sure there's any practical way of preventing this - It's part of the "charm" of nickel.

Lightly polishing with something like 'Simichrome' polish will help protect but you have to remember that your removing small amounts of plating so don't over do.

Use Flitz polish, that will help remove the tarnish and protect the nickel for a little bit. You can pick up the product at just about any hardware store.
