Thanks for the answer. I was afraid you were going to say that ;-) the problem is only on the base around the kahler name and one saddle. I wonder if it is worth the while to take everything apart? I shoud mention the guitar has not been played for 10 years...
If it were me....yeah I'd take it all apart and soak it, its worth the time spent. If you have a dremel with a cotton pad polishing wheel. I would use that on it after soaking. DO NOT use the polishing wheel that is really coarse and stiff. It WILL take the rust off, but will mar the finish as well if you are not very careful.

On a few other froums I've read of advise AGAINST WD40. Hard to completely remove from parts, and the residue attracts grime and dust afterwards, were the main complaints. Other people use gun oil or something and crazy micro oil things, but for me, WD40, well cleaned afterwards, works well. (I have had the attracting-gunge issue in the past)
