    i'm trying to decide if i wanna put stickers on my new bass. kinda a hard desicion. i've done it in the past. i guess if i do i guess i can take'em off and just polish off the residue right. then, yeah that's the question, i can just polish off the residue if i remove one right?

    Sometimes the glue can be EXTREMELY HARD to remove without using some kind of product that might harm the finish.

    Since "stickers are my bread & butter i thought i say a few words.
    First of all: the quality of the stickers is a factor:
    Paperstickers = BAD, plastic = better.
    My main objection to stickers is that they protect the finish underneath, so if you play your bass hard and long, and then remove the sticker,
    chanses are that the bass will be two-toned. A worn look everywhere except for where you put the sticker(s).
    I wouldn´t do it, but that´s just me.

    Stickers are lame. Does your bass have a pickguard? If so, put em on that.

    yea, i wouldn't put stickers on paint. pickguard is fine, though. i can't even bear to put real stickers on my case :crying: .

    when i started playing i wrote some stuff down on a sticker and stuck them to the back of my bass. (bad idea, i know) and it was EXTREMELY hard to get off.
