Where exactly on the guitar? Guitars are these magical things that have multiple parts that all have different surfaces, which need to be treated differently.

What kind of guitar? If it's a new poly coat, then goo-gone would be just find. Those thicker coats can withstand a lot more of a beating than the Nitro guitars.

JustRooster has this mostly right -- the type of paint on the guitar can make a big difference.

Poly, no matter how thin, is impervious to most solvents, so goo-gone would probably get it done.

Lacquers (like nitrocellulose lacquer) by definition can be dissolved in their original solvent, so something like Acetone would definitely damage the paint (and BTW, nitrocellulose guitars usually have far thicker paint than most guitarists believe).
