I would talk to Al Price about this, but the first thing I would try would be to take some #0000 steel wool and try it on one small spot. This fine steel wool won't remove any metal to speak of, unless it is not well attached (the plating) to the substrate. I have used it to remove tarnish and uneven aging from nickel plated parts for years, and it has been pretty successful. If the plating substrate was not prepped well before plating, there is the danger of exposing the underlying metal, but if the tarnish is only on the surface, and doesn't extend to the substrate, you will be fine.

Thanks rmcdow. I went out and bought the steel wool but it did not help much. I think the blotchy stuff is due to contact with water. My upstairs neighbor had an air condition leak and it went through the ceiling onto this banjo. :-(
