Stickered Guitar

one of my guitars has stickers on it and i think it looks sweet.
my les paul i'm not gonna put stickers on,
but my new tele i'm really tempted to, i laid a bunch on and i think id look sweet. But i really like the look of it plain too, so i don't know

so are you ok with stickers on guitars?
not?

I'd never put a sticker on my guitar. Just doesn't seem classy. And I like being classy. (sticker on my jazzbox? yikes! never! )

On a nice hollow body? I wouldn't either. Nope, no way.

Not on my LP either... I'd never sticker up a $1200 guitar, for obvious reasons.

You should see the case she..........it.......lives in.

As an obvious and proud advocate of this practice, if I invested a lot of money in a nice hollow body, I would let the finish do the talking as far as looks.

I intend to invest some money in a nice hollow body hopefully next year and the only thing I'll do to it is wipe it off and change strings when needed. I'm crazy, not stupid.

I would never treat any of my guitars that way - I've spent good money on my gear. Don't do anything you will regret in the future.

A Telecaster covered in stickers would probably make me ill at first sight.

Then again, I'd buy a guitar that was covered in stickers...but only with the intention of taking them all off...it's a good way to get the price lowered
