I recently removed some stickers from my guitar an they left their 'stickiness' on it. I was just wondering what the best way of removing it is.
Thanks in advance.

water
The 60s are gone, dope will never be as cheap, sex never as free, and the rock and roll never as great.

I will never understand why people put stickers on their nice guitars. If it's a hunk of junk then whatever, but c'mon...


And use water I guess.

You can buy some of that "goo-gone" stuff. But i'm sure water and a good scrubbing will do the same thing.

yeah, i had the same problem

what you need is a cleaner with alcohol, or petroleum distallate.

so if you have fretboard cleaner like lem-oil, that takes it off straight away, but if you have a matte finish it may damage it? i'm not sure with that one.

but i have a gloss finish, and its not the most of expensive of guitars.

but yeah, lem-oil will take it straight off, no problems. wonder stuff.

and as for the issue of putting stickers on guitars, some people do it because it adds an element of individuality to your own guitar. You may feel a guitar should be kept in perfect condition, some people thing a guitar looks better used and abused, covered in sticker, or whatever.

I heard that WD-40 can remove sticker glue as well. But Im not sure what that'd do to the guitar.

try to use some kind of rubbing alcohol, dont use goo gone or any off that because if will probly eat the finish on the guitar away, try water first though./

rubbing alcohol will kill your finish, gasoline(petrol) should work pretty well.

i use lighter fluid personally, but yeah that goo-gone stuff may or may not damage your finnish. I would suggest water.
#16
also, if theres alot, a hair drier will heat up and remove most stickers. again anything u use, in moderation. no reason to screw up the paint.
