    People have mocked my, "You can just put a dirty guitar bridge in a dishwasher" technique in other thread, but it works.

    I run all my floyds through the dishwasher like, twice a year. Dishwasher, WB-40, back on the guitar.

    You guys scrubbing away at your bridges like 16th century peasants are way behind the times, throw it in your whirlpool or whatever.

    There is literally no good reason why you can't put guitar hardware in the dishwasher.

    I've personally found that method to be too costly to be justified on anything short of the finest Italian Acrylic.

    So, if you're not displacing the water, what are you doing with it? What does the "B" mean?
    Noodles

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    I use it on my mountain bike chains. They're about as expensive as a vintage guitar these days, so I suppose they count.

    I wear hardware on any instruments I own if I play them remotely regularly. See: all the guitars I've gigged, ever . But I don't feel compelled to disassemble the bridge and give it a CLR bath - mostly due to reassembly and setup.

    OP, what's the ETA on getting your new guitar back?

This logic doesn't apply to everything - but if someone bought a mid-level $1.5K guitar like an Edwards Kiko and played the hell out of it, it's probably a good guitar. If someone bought a $10K PRS and it looks immaculate, well, mine would, too. It's a different thought process.

    If an LP Standard has a repaired headstock and has been heavily played after the repair, for example, it's probably a good guitar.
