    Hi,

    My silver sky's saddle has rusted pretty badly. I live in Singapore (high humidity).

    Any advice? How to get a replacement? How to prevent future rusting? I've cleaned it with wd-40.

    Can i replace them with vintage fender strat saddles?

    Thanks.

    wd-40 is a water dispersant, &c. you could replace them with any adjustable stratocaster saddles.

    Perhaps @Utkarsh could point you in the right direction. He’s from your area.

    Try putting some wd40 in a cup or ash tray or something and letting the rusted pieces just soak in it for a while. After an hour or so they should really be like new. I’ve done this with all kinds of hardware

    Other companies charge extra for that. ;)

    They are going to rust no matter what because they are not plated and steel rusts.

    Fender saddles won't be a correct fit.
