have just bought a 'new', 4 year old stock Deluxe Players Strat. It s a very nice looking guitar, but the clear sticker on the scratchplate is totally stuck to the guitar. I am in the process of scratching it off, but there is remaining stickyness on the scratchplate.

What is the best way to remove this without damaging the finish?

Thanks if you can help!!!!!!
I use eucalyptus oil on my guitars when they have stickyness on them. Doesn't damage the finish and gets the sticky stuff off easy.
