I just bought a new guitar, and I was wondering, is there any use for the film that comes on the pickup? Is it just a dust/scratch guard, or does it have a real purpose? I thought for sure that it was irrelevent, but the guitar I bought has the film applied very tightly, and seems almost difficult to remove. And if it is useless, do you guys prefer to keep it on or do you take it off immediately?
It's to make the guitar look clean and shiny and protect it when its new.
Take it off.
