Stickers of the fretboard?.....NEVER!
Stickers on the ugly white pickguard.....Yes!
I bought this new in 2000 and intended to change the pickguard to tort but never got around to it. Now that the maple fretboard has darkened some with with age I think it would look great. I never cared much for a tort guard with a shiny new maple board. Just doesn't look right to me until it gets a little seasoned.
