sorry. i mean something sturdy enough to not come off accidently, but you can take it off without damaging the paint.

she wont even let me mess with the action.

I can see why you would listen if it wasn't your guitar but....

If it is, your's you should be aloud to personalize it, and if your mom doesn't like it, and hates you for and kills you.

1. She's irrational.

2. 1 was a good enough.

Do it without permission

If you can't get the spray paint for get a freind to get some and do it at their house,
If your mom won't let you take your guitar anywhere and do at night.

If you want it, it'd be worth it.

And it'd probably make a nice story later.

ok run out to your local hobby store [make sure they have a scrapbooking section] and ask for "rub-ons"
they are seriously one of mans greatest inventions, its like a water slide decal without having to mess with water or anything else
yeah
#30
i feel for you. i used to want to spray "meat wallet" on my samick, but my mom wouldn't let me. she would check my intonation while i slept, that's how crazy she---wait. what the ****? what kind of 13 year old are you and what kind of mom do you have (no offense, just..okay a little offense)? seriously, does she play? i mean, how would she A) know what action is, B) notice your action changed, C) give a shit?

but to be fair, stickers come off almost immediately, so i'd try another route. i dont know about the rub ons.
#31
you can go to a sign shop. Most will cut you what ever design, or letters you want in vinyl so you can put it on as sticker and it would come back off with our much problem. To keep it from coming off on its own or too easy, you just need to prep the surface properly. you should be able to just use denatured alcohol and be fine. BTW you are only 13, good move on listening to your mom about the not painting it part. As far as the action goes, i would say if you mess with it and screw it up you best be able to fix it cause she probably wont pay to have it fixed. I am sure she is the one who paid for it and the amp, and will most likely be the one to buy your next guitar as well. Do as she said.
#32
you can't adjust the action on your guitar without asking your mom?

Well, I'd say if you're worried about the value for a $100 guit...

Forget it.

Secondly... Wait.

Because anything you can think to put on a guitar at thirteen years old is going to have you kicking yourself when you're 18.
#36
i don't know why your mom thinks that you have a better chance of ruining the guitar messing with the action than changing the pickups.

I read this thread, And i can't actually understand at all. A mum who actually stops you from doing something like customizing a guitar. My parents couldn't actually care, but they would prefer me doing that then doing stuff on the streets so they help me out haha :P

I would use sharpie, I had some on my strat copy, it lasted about a month, then started to fade and its easy enough to get off with a bit of rubbing alcohol.
