    I recently bought a bass with a vinyl sticker (kanji, says akido). I think I'm going to take it off, but I don't want to damage the finish. It's a black gloss finish, pretty 'standard' I guess. I was thinking along the lines of goof-off or something, but I need some advise. Also, if this is in the wrong section, I apologize. Thanks

    a lot will come off if you just get it nice and wet, and rub the base of your palm against it for a bit, with some good elbow grease.

    if that doesnt work, an "eraser wheel" does the trick really well, along with gentle application of heatgun

    You could also try warming it up with a hairdryer and see if it peels right off.
