long story short im working on a dumbasses guitar and he basically put duct tape on it for no reason. the strap pole came out but he replaced it with a screw and after i took the duct tape off it was pretty solid so idk why he put it on in the first place.

so how how would i get it off without messing with the paint? ive been suggested goo gone but idk.

a combo of goo gone, hot water, soap, and some elbow grease. I broke my strap lock on tour a few years ago and duct taped my strap to my bass. That took a while to scrub off haha.

+1 for googone. my friends bass had vinyl stickers literally covering it. took a LONG time, but looked great after and you'd never know it was there.

goo gone may or may not be quite strong enough. if all else fails, you can use lacquer thinner to remove it. won't take terribly long and wont hurt the paint job. it'll leave behind a milky coating but that can be buffed right off. note there is a difference between paint thinner, acetone, lacquer thinner, etc. it has to say LACQUER THINNER.

i had a guitar once where a guy did some kind of frankenstrat thing over the original paint and he never lacquered over the new paint. i took some laquer thinner to it and after alot of scrubbing it was back to its original state, albeit heavily pick-scratched from the brush i used. most of the scratches buffed out though. ah well, live and learn.

i would be very nervous about lacquer thinner anywhere my guitars, that stuff destroys everything finish related. most modern factory made guitars have a clear polyester finish which is indestructable by any solvent, but i am still nervous.

but completely serious, charcoal lighter fluid is a great adhesive remover. ive been using it for years for stickers and tape goop.

This......as long as you don't drown the guitar in the stuff then this (below) won't be a concern....
