    How to remove stickers and tape residue from Cutlass

    So the Cutlass I just got from GC has a big piece of what looks like packing tape on the back of the guitar. Underneath is a bar code and SN.

    Once I remove that what should I use to remove any leftover residue?
    I've used lighter fluid on acoustics after removing the pickguard with no ill effects.
    Can I do the same with this guitar?

    Thanks

    Hi JDS
    yes lighter fluid (naptha) is fine to use . I've used it on all my guitars with no problem.

    Congrats on the new Cutlass!

    I think that barcode is under material that I would describe as a "cling" rather than packing tape. (If what you're seeing is the one from the factory.) I've never had any residue to deal with after removal.

    You may be right. I'll work on this tonight after work.

    So far I'm really liking this guitar. It also has a bit of fret sprout but hopefully that will clear up over the next few days. I have a humidifier running.

    Thanks everybody.

    You were right, just a cling type sticker. No residue.

    Thanks again.
