Ok. I want to add stickers on my guitar like Billie Joe, or pretty much any punk/pop-punk strat user. But If I dislike them, how hard is it to be removed?
#2
Not hard at all. Just takes a second. As long as it's not a super sticker or something. The finish has your back.

Pretty hard. You have to not only get them off, but then you have to use chemicals to remove the residue. Plus, those chemicals could damage the finish/paint job on the guitar as well. So, if you put stickers on your guitar, I wouldn't recommend removing them.

I guess you could probably use soap and water. But I haven't tried. I haven't tried taking stickers off a guitar either... So don't listen to me...

it's a lot easier just to put other ones ontop of them if you dont like them

if you take one off there's a heck of a lot of residue and it's a pain in the arss to get off but you can with that alcohol stuff i think i dont know my mom just gave me and it did the job for the most part. There was a little streak left on the finish mabye i didn't clean it up all the way but i later just put another sticker on top of that streak

put em on, cover them up if you dont like them that's usually the best idea

Chemicals? are ****ing kidding me? dude that will **** up the wood and finish, get a piece of Bounty and put some water on it and rub where the residue is, just wait until it falls off, i did it with one of my Les Pauls and it doesnt have a signle scratch, finish isnt ****ed up, nor there's any residue left.

^I did say that that would fuck the finish up if you would have read 1 more word into my post. I also said that soap and water would most likely work too...

Most chemicals have no effect on modern poly finishes. They're pretty durable. Even paint stripper doesnt work on them.

Goo-Gone & a soft towel is your best bet. Works everytime I need to remove stickers off some asshat kids guitar.

why not use goo gone?

scratching anything off of a painted surface, can leave a mark.

I usually clean them off my friend's guitars by spraying a good amount of guitar cleaner on the sticker and then ruffing up the sticker with my finger and then spray some more and let it sit for a few min, go back and it should be all off. Any residue usually comes off if you use the cleaner on it.
