I have a 2011 Cu24 Experience model with covered 59/09's on them. Got it in July, it really hasn't been played much. I am just a hobbiest at home playing when I can and I actually hurt both hands in Sept which has kept me from playing right up to this week.

Anyways. The gold on the pup covers sucks. I do not know how else to say it. Its the only thing on the entire guitar that has let me down. It marks very easy, tarnishes easy etc. So can I protect it somehow from getting worse? or I guess I could replace them with chrome ones although I am not sure what is involed there? are they waxed? or just remove them all together but I really want covers on there. What sucks is that these are etched with the 59/09 on them too so if I remove them, thats gone. A Little thing but...

And if I replace the covers, am I effecting the prs warranty?
