    Thin film like plastic? Peels off, looks sorta like scotch tape? that's just a cover for the pickgaurd. You remove it. It's sorta there to help protect the picguard from unnessicary dings and dents shipping. Harmless to peel off...or leave on.

    Nothing wrong there.

    That stuff has a name:

    Its called: Enjoy your new bass.
    Cause that plastic you are taking off is really you bassically unwrapping the new bass.

    Perhaps the plastic is more of a protective thing then metiphorical, but who cares? You are opening new, awesome experiences. Yeppers.:D

    Rip that stuff off and start putting those "love marks" on your pickguard!

    It's just there to protect the pickguard from the 14-year-old slappers down at GC. Peel it off.
  6. It's like the placenta of a new born bass. Eat it, it's good for you.
