No More Rusty Guitar Strings and Screws?Posted: May 15, 2012
I wrote a post a while back called Screwing Screwed Screws that deals with common screw issues on guitars. Many of the issues myself and other guitarist have with screws on our guitars is the result of acidic hand sweat rusting the screws. Well now there is a product by GraphTech that might make my post obsolete, but that’s a good thing. It’s called Chops PrePlay and it is a pH balancer hand conditioner that instantly neutralizes acidic hands. Supposedly it protects the guitar’s metal parts while making playing more comfortable. Perhaps the dreaded frozen bridge saddle screw is a thing of the past. I am usually not a fan of gimmicky guitar products, I’m more from the school of “Shut Up And Play Yer Guitar”, but I may try Chops PrePlay out. The only thing I fear is that it might soften my calluses I worked so hard to develop.
