    I would be careful using goo gone, it may marr the finish. I would try a blow dryer and a plastic putty knife. Heat really helps, but again be careful you dont get the surface too hot as it might wreck the guitar.

    that looks good, is there anything i might have around the house?
     
  5. WD-40 but like the other stuff, try on a small inconspicuos area first to make sure it doesn't mar the finish.

    Also I've heard the skillet spray stuff (Pam) may work.
     
  6. You might try denatured alcohol. It's a good solvent for adhesives. I'd do a test spot first.
     
  7. Naptha= Lighter Fluid. Wipe it off when you're done.

    Whatever you do don't take a hairdryer to your guitar.
