well, after a year or so of debating, and researching, i finally got my epi lp. im very pleased with it. anyhow, how do you guys feel about peeling the stickers off the back of the headstock? which ones should go, and which ones should stay? does it matter? i doubt this guitar will appreciate in value, but i dont want to ruin something that would matter in 20 years. am i putting to much thought into this? lol

thanks!

You're putting too much thought.

Take them off. Epiphones don't appreciate in value nor do they hold much in value in the vintage guitar market anyways. As soon as you buy a new Epiphone, it's worth turd all.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Leave them on, If you get tired of it in a year and want to sell it; the next guy may want them on there to get that warm fuzzy new feeling.

lots of guitar that were worth nothing back in the day are worth a lot now, and are very sought after, it best to leave any and all identification marks on in order for a possible future owner to understand what they may be getting.

They aren't identification marks though.

It's just those 'CE' sticks and the 'made in china' ones.

I was talking about new Epiphones. I guess I could've clarified better.

What I mean is that newer Epiphones, as in, the copies, circa late '80s - present, do not retain their value.

Thanks for busting my balls though, I truly appreciate it.

I admittedly missed the "new" in your post, sorry . But yes new Epiphones do not retain their value.

And I only bust the balls of people I like, so no worries, I have seen you around here many times, don't know if you can say the same about me though.

EDIT: Completely forgot, amazing color on that! It really shines. The only problem is I am buying that exact same guitar... You beat me to it.
