just felt like i should post this cuz it might help someone. I'll be kind enough to add this for search reference: stickers sticker removal getting stickers off my bass how can i get stickers off my bass glue goo stickers i had a mermaid sticker on pickguard and it left a ton of glue and paper on it. i couldn't get it off and stuck other horrible stickers on top. last night (after about 6 months) i thought i'd give another run at getting everything off. the new stickers pulled up most of the crap that was left behind by the mermaid. i then took what was still sticky from the new ones and kept dabbing at glue that still remained and it worked miracles. i just kept dabbing at what was there and eventually got it all to come off. trying to wipe glue away with a rag does not work. it spreads it, makes it worse and even harder to get off. that's all. hope it helps someone.
