Hi, maybe you can help with the following problem:
Purchased a phantastic modern (!) Link tenor mpc, probably 20 years old. The gold lacquer almost gone remaining the silver (?) lacquer underneath.
But under the silver lacquer I encountered numerous "bubbles"/blisters on the table of the piece, probably caused by corrosion. What to do ? Can that be removed without altering the mpc ? Thanks for you knowledge.

Hi, thanks for posting !
1. "20 years old is NOT modern ;)"
ok, haha:)).
This was just to state which kind of Link I´m refering to, as opposed to Early Babbitt, Florida etc. The "modern" Link or "current production" was started manufacturing in 1980. Just tried to give a hint on kind of material to the specialists.
2. "it is gold plate not lacquer"
Thanks for the right term ! Sure it´s gold plated and underneath silver and not lacquered. Sorry for not doing my homework.
3. "if the bubbles stop the reed sealing then send it to a refacer."
Dont want a refacing, its playing great, ok sealing could be better but just wanna get rid of them blisters !
What about unplating -lacquering the whole piece ?
