As a rule, I don't like stickers on my guitars. I would rather see the natural finish and they tend to trash up the guitar.

I do have a strawberry decal on my 1973 Bronco, but it actually looks good and it was on the guitar when I got it.





Sweet looking Bronco!!

I was given this well gigged Squier Tele, by someone who gigged it solid in a punk/jazz outfit. This guitar was never kept in a case, and actually got lost in an audience on a couple of occasions, to be retrieved at the end of the gig. Had beer, blood and possibly worse spilt on it, and puts paid to those who say "You can't gig with a Squier"





I took most of the stickers off in the end

Restored it a bit, but kept the Checkpoint Charlie sticker.

I appreciate tasteful stickers, especially that strawberry bronco. Rectangular stickers look like ass IMO, but if you like it, cool.

Here are the two electrics of mine that have stickers, the tele and the Univox



My telecaster has a few flowers on it. I'd like to think it's not especially tacky, more like sticky m0j0. And sunflowers are the best flower.

The little shamrock on the Univox is there because the dickhead drummer in my high school band put the the soldering iron down in an unfortunate place. It's a tiny blemish, but the shamrock disguises that bout of stupidity.

My Washburn however, is a tacky sticker slut:



There used to be another Christmas bow on the lower bout of the guitar, but it fell off. The sticker on the pickguard is from the doctor's office, says "no tears today" with a little mouse on it. There's also an apple pie air freshener hanging fron the high e tuner and an exclamation mark on the headstock. Pure class.

I had some stickers on my black Jazzmaster, I found lady hurbs old sticker book and stole a bunch of them, pictures of puppys and kittens. I liked having them on the guitar. But this thread reminded me I was wanting to take them off. so they are now off the front. But I left the back alone for now as it was a pain to take them off.
