Cleaning the gold.
I am the original owner of a Gretsch White Falcon. My father was a caterer and one of the parties he was catering had Fred Gretsch Jr. As a guest. This was April of 1967. My dad actually ordered the guitar then and there. A couple of months later my new Falcon was delivered. It is in fantastic condition. The only problem is that the gold plated hard wear became pitted and develed a patina. What's the best way to restore the shine without spending a mint? This is my first ever post on any forum! (by the way the brand new Falcon cost $900 and the case was an additional $157 in 1967)
