So have any of you guys put any duct tape or random stuff on your guitars? I am talking about adding it just for the hell of it. I have been thinking about doing some of that stuff to my guitar but i cant seem to be able to taint its simplistic look. What have you guys done to your guitars or what do you think on the subject.

I have duct tape on mine, but not for appearance, it's used to hold the grounding wire underneath my trem springs, or it just ****s up for whatever reason.
But my guitar is too sexy for duct tape.

Everyone in my band tapes random phrases to all their instruments and hold them up to spell out a random phrase before the breakdowns in one of our songs.

yea, i had a stripe of white duct tape at an outward angle, from the top to bottom of my guitar, near the end. and i still have on my headstock. the only reason i took it off was because it was burning my arm every time i'd play standing up.
I remember the day i put it, i had just bought a bunch of rolls of tape for teh lulz. i get home, sit down with the bag in my hands. i look up at my guitar and VOILA i got an idea. man, i was so bored that day.

goes to show what highschool kids do in their spare time aside from fapping

I used to have dental floss on my headstock. lol. I thought it would look "mummified", but it just was kinda dumb. I've done alot of work with it since then though and now it looks very nice sanded down. I'm thinking about burning an image of an angel into the headstock. It would be pretty tedious though.

I actually didnt notice any difference in tone or anything...even with the duct tape on there I dont hear any difference at all

plus I know that a bunch of like famous guitarsts did it before...I know dime did and the guy from Cellador...and I think Vai did at one point too

thanks. imma go waste some tape and time on tapic my pickups
i thought dime only put tape on the edge of his pickups so the strings dont get caught when dive bombing.

OH, so i dont go off topic. I fixed my gig bag with duct tape. so, now it looks like some retarted zebra with some gray disease. (i used black, white and gray duct tape. the case itself is black)

Uhhh don't rape your guitars with sticky residue, save the tape for your drumskins.
