    Anybody have a guitar with a cool looking decal applied by you or a previous owner? I generally don't like stickers applied to the finish of a guitar, but there are some old decals that ahve been applied that look fairly decent.
    I used to have an old Stella acoustic with a big beautiful decal of a woman playing a guitar on it. I wished I'd have kept it, but I stupidly sold it at a guitar show. I've seen all of the decals that are sold on Ebay as "pinups" or "bomber art", but most of the new ones look kind of goofy to me.

    Lets see some pics.

    I think there was a similar post a few months back of this.

    John Mayer has that heart with a lightning bolt through it on the white Strat he has been playing lately. I think it looks pretty good..

    Worth a look at http://www.guitarprinting.com
    That guy does transit vinyl decals that can amount to a complete refinish of your guitar...

    Wood styles:

    This is not a relic job. This is an overall decal:

    There are also tons of things you can do with pickguards:

    I don't always love stickers on guitars, but I did put this one on my Squier '51. I think it works.

    This may be one of the funniest posts I've ever read on TGP by Jetsnation, and it applies to the subject!
