Who does it? and what do you do?

I for one think it's pretty lame. I like my guitars pristine. Give or take some dust.

apologies for the lack of an "indifferent" option. If you feel this way just say so!
Don't vote. whatever.

Only on cheap guitars, would I like it.

My friend has a really crappy Squire strat, and it's covered in some pretty sweet stickers, and I really like the look of it. It's aesthetically pleasing.. But not so much with tone, or playability. So messed up.
#9
I have a Squier Tele Custom that's plastered in stickers, IMO it looks better that way. I'd never dream of covering my Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top with them though.

Stickers go on your car.

Cocaine goes on your guitar.

I have stickers on my first guitar. My best friend at the time had stickers on his guitar too, and I thought it was normal to have stickers on guitars when I as first starting.

And yes, both of us had shitty guitars. His was a BC Rich Warlock Bronze, mine was a Epi Les Paul Jr, both under $200.



I got both of those stickers at my first concert, so they have a bit of sentimental value too. I added an "I voted" sticker that I got when I voted for the first time back in November.

The only good looking stickers were the ones on Pete Townshend's guitars and those were just numbers. yeah they were used to know which one is tuned down and such but it looks classic I don't know why
#16
If every inch of it is covered in stickers that can... not including the neck and other similar spots, then it looks okay, but id rather my guitars to be naked and shiny

They belong on Squiers, under $200 Epiphones, First Act, lowest-of-the-low end Ibanez.

That said, I did a bit of art on my Squier Strat, and I love it.

Okay that's actually kind of cool. And stickers are for acoustic guitar hardcases, not guitars.

Sometimes they can be nice if there are only a few, but it usually makes the guitar look tacky.

Here is an example of a nice looking one:
#23
I have one sticker (not permanently attached, mind you) on my bass. It's located right behind the pickup (and is about a 1.5" square) that says "I <3 Head"

Other than that, I find it pretty bad looking.

If you are referring to blink-182 and how thats how they refer to themselves?

But, I have a toms sticker on my acoustic, mitchell, will put some on my squier, but would never put one on a mid-high end guitar.

To everyone saying that drawing on a guitar is gay. I agree with you about stickers, but not art.

What if you draw stickers on the guitar? Or a sticker of a drawing? Or a drawing of a drawing? Or a sticker of a drawing with someone drawing a sticker?

I have confused you with my inception.

I voted gaaaaay, but some of the pictures in this thread are making me rethink that. Sometimes writing on guitars can be cool (e.g. Woody Guthrie, Tom Morello, etc.). I love custom paint jobs that look cool. When you mentioned stickers, I was thinking of the br00tal 13-year-olds that put skateboarding stickers on their Squire Strats.

I slapped a Streelight Manifesto sticker on my acoustic. The sticker is black and white and the guitar is black so it doesn't seem too out of place or anything.


Plus it's only a $150 guitar, so I'm not too worried about messing up the finish or anything like that.


I probably wouldn't do that with a more expensive guitar.
#38
I once covered my strat in stickers. About a week later i decided i didn't like it and took them off leaving my guitar covered in sticky adhesive. Being the G i am i made the best of it and stuck picks (since i'm always losing them) on the sticky residue left by the stickers. Now my guitar looks cool and i always have picks on hand.

Therefore win.

I'm against it unless it adds to the guitar, which doesn't happen often. I put a sticker from my little sister's Daisy Rock mini-acoustic she got (which I forgot she had, she needs to get her ass to work on that) on the pickguard of my Crate Strat-copy because it was sentimental, and it actually looks quite nice with it.

Also, Bill Cosby guitar has made my night completely. I applaud you, sir.
