Thanks all. I'll remove the plastic from the tuning pegs as well.
I take the pickguard plastic off as soon as I know I am bonding with a guitar. If I see a used guitar in the rack with pickguard plastic on it, I assume the previous owner didn't bond with it.
I recommend leaving it ON.....if you go to sell in the future, someone will offer less money because it's NOT in original condition.

I always take it off immediately. I don't mind little scratches. It's what makes it uniquely mine.
Bought a semi-hollow Vantage a couple years back from G.C., and to my surprise still had the little round plastic protection on the tuners...from the early '90s...
Came off as soon as I cleaned it up and restrung it.
Plastic on tuning keys?
Wife got me a knock off les Paul at the pawn shop a few weeks ago. It’s just hammered. Real beat up. But still had the plastic on the tuning keys.
Yes, there is a plastic film on the back of the tuning pegs.
It’s not a mattress. No legal implications. Take it off.
If you buy a new relic, do you leave the plastic on?
One of the Bass kids at school I gave lessons to still had the plastic on his scratchplate and the pickup, etc...
I liberated him, told him that taking all the plastic off your new guitar was like a sign of ownership/possession...
he was a gr4 kid.. quite unaware of this ritual.... I lifted a corner of the plastic and let him peel off all the stuff, even the white dots on the tuners...
Oh yeah...nothing sweeter than the devilish grin from a young guitar player getting to know his instrument......
I saw a similar grin on the face of another young guitarist in the band when I first hooked a DS-1 into his rig and said.. just before your solo step on this, then click it off at the end....priceless!...
Leaving the plastic on reminds me of the kids these days who leave tags and stickers on their baseball caps. For crying out loud, let the relic begin.
Why do they put that plastic on anyway?
I'm not touching my tone plastic.
The Telecaster Plastic Patrol is always watching!
I tend to buy second hand so someone has already done it for me
I had my Squier for more than ten years before I noticed it.
Yeah, I removed it.
I never thought about removing plastic being anything more than what one would do until I caught a Big Bang Theory episode where Wolowitz and Koothrapali pulled the plastic from the screen of an iPhone together with big smiles on their faces. It was like a ritual. I remember many many years back that microscope sales reps were instructed not to remove the plastic protecting digital display screens so the products would still be in good cosmetic condition (still look "new") when sold as "demo". I thought that was a little crazy. Used is used, even with the protective plastic still on it. Now somebody tell me why GC removes switch tips. Has anyone actually lost one? In the rare case it might happen, can anyone not afford the replacement?
I leave it all on, but that's just not good enough so i wrap the whole guitar in saran wrap. I leave the strings unwrapped tho, otherwise the sound gets a bit dull and quiet.
