Gibson G-201 Contact Cleaning
« on: December 09, 2018, 02:19:13 AM »
If you saw my last post you will know I had just purchased my first Gibson G-201 and I lack much knowledge on how to work on/fix combo organs.  I now need instructions on how and what to do to clean the contacts safely.

Hi, sorry, I just saw this. First, do NOT use spray contact cleaner, it destroys any old plastic that it touches. The old standard way I learned of doing this, is believe it or not, rubbing the contacts with paper money. No joke. It's safer that Emory cloth or chemicals...
