i can't decide what to do with my Classic Vibe sticker. Help me out!
...peel it and play!
Threw it away.
I left mine on for the first few months then in a moment of madness, I caved in & peeled it off.
Miss it though. It looked kinda cool on my CV50's Sunburst Strat.
It went in the garbage. There was a local Tele on CL that had a bright white spot on the pickguard where the owner left the sticker for too long. The pickguard faded around it. He had it advertised for a couple of months at a fair price IMO. But obviously there were no buyers: I just saw it in a local pawn shop. I wouldn't mind buying it but I would have to put on a new pickguard.
I took all the plastic bits off mine at the same time as I peeled the sticker & replaced them with all white knobs, pup covers etc.
Recently, I ended up putting all the original (fake aged bits) back as I think that's 90% of the CV mojo & looks. She's 100% CV50's stock again - Just minus the sticker.
I've never understood why people leave stickers on guitars
You're kidding right? It's your sticker so you paid for he privilege of doing whatever you like with it. Leave it, throw it away, stick it to your forehead if you like. Unless you think it may have some tremendous value 50 years from now and will sell on Ebay for more than you paid for that CV I'd suggest trashing it but like I said. It's your sticker. LOL
Once it's removed, it looks just like all the other MIA, MIM Fenders, Squier's etc
That sticker is a reminder that this is a Classic Vibe !
I'm sorry I peeled mine off.
If you take soulmans advice, pls post pics.
Wonder if I can score a new CV Sticker on Ebay ?
I went to a blues jam a while back in Denmark St, London, where a guy had bought a tele and then played it in the jam at a bar across the road from the shop. The tele still had the big price label hanging off the headstock by a string. It was obviously his first serious guitar and he just couldn't bring himself to remove it. Bless.
Hah! I must admit to being a bit like that.
It's like a O.C.D.
Often, I can't bring myself to part with the packaging & boxes that stuff comes in.
The prettier the packaging, the harder it is to discard it!
Must admit, it has served me well a few times when I've needed to flog stuff on ebay to pay bills. I have all the original packaging!
My cupboards, shed etc are chockers with empty boxes though
It's a sticker. Peel it off and bin it.
In some areas, however, the issue of boxes is a whole different game. I don't know about the USA, but in the UK the value of old Dinky or Matchbox model cars can almost double if you've still got the original box in good condition. Unfortunately, you have to wait rather a long time for these things to acquire such collectable status.
Take your pickguard off and stick it to the back or in the case of a strat on the back of trem cover.
I have my green box for the original Squier JV series 1982 ish .Its on the 21 frets site .No idea if it is valuable .Probably LOL.The little made in USA pickups sticker on a JV was well worth keeping as it iD'd the pickups, an important selling point
On collectors stuff the box is all .I have sold model auto boxes for far more than I paid for the contents originally .And thats for modern Chinese production .
I never had this problem until I started buying Apple stuff. Those Apple boxes are little works of art in themselves. It just felt wrong throwing them out, so I've got quite a collection now!
I must admit the few times I have actually bought a brand new Fender guitar I have left the red tag dangling from the headstock for a while.
My sticker is still on my mine. The sticker is still on my Jimmie Vaughan MIM Stratocaster, too.
