    I can't resist putting them on my cases but not on my guitars. I like them on others sometimes though.

    My Strat case:

    That looks killer! I have the asbestos sticker on mine too but I worked in the indusrty for years so there are a few environmental related sticker on there.

    I think it depends on the guitar. Some guitars, like old thrashed Juniors, just scream out for a decal of some kind. Lots of artists have added decals, some have hand painted designs on their guitars. You do you, that's the great thing about making music. I only have a couple decals at the moment. I'm a big history buff and find pirates and their various logos interesting. This is an all black Hamer and the Calico Jack insignia just seemed to fit.

    My wife is a huge Disney fan and this punkrock Ariel was the perfect size to cover the routing on my pinecaster. It's not even stuck on, just held in place by the pickguard.

    Yeah, it was a risk, but he's off the grid, he won't see it.

    Though it *might* be appropriate for a gig with Duke Silvers...

    I would never put stickers on my guitars, but I think it's cool when other people do. I'm just not a sticker guy.

    Mopar fan myself, back in the day had a '71 Challenger R/T 383 Magnum 4-spd.
    Orange w/vinyl top, factory louvers.
    Also had a '70 Barracuda Gran Coupe 318 4-spd. with factory luggage rack.
    Still a Mopar guy, but now in the practical sense...
