    Hi All,

    We have a EEb Sov with a modified lead pipe. No problems there. However, to disguise the modification, past owners seem to have relacqured the bass which I think was originally silver. (I presume they don't normally lacquer over silver do they?)

    In places the lacquer is now going a bit green! Is there a technique to removing "the green" without leaving tooling marks?

    Always tricky when you have a laquered instrument, but various techniques to remove verdigris can be found here.
