Hello,
I am wondering what I can do to remove the lacquer from this ligature? I know house hold cleaning solutions probably would strip it off but Im not sure how strong BG ligature lacquers are. And dipping it in a tub of bleach is probably overkill x 10.
Any suggestions?

Acetone(nail polish remover) - chlorine bleach - or polish it off with a circular tool like a Dremel

It might feel slightly rough, like a horn does where there is lacquer missing.

Why are you wanting to strip the lacquer off?

Guys one more real quick question. When the lacquer is on the ligature, will the ligature conduct electricity or not?
Yes. Lacquer provides NO insulation. Sounds like you're planning some electroplating. If that's the case, the plating won't stick well to the lacquer...

Thanks for the answers.
I thought that was a stupid question to ask whether lacquer would transmit electricity or not. Duh of course not! I was testing it to see if it conducted electricity or not and I didnt think the process would be that easy but it was.
