My J-45 TV is getting well used for everything. Traveling, campfire play, hauled around everywhere. It is getting a nicely well worn look. It has the bright orange label inside of it that is now kind of appearing out of place. how can I safely remove it, without destroying it or the guitar?

I am also going to put the pick guard back on - either the original, or from some tigerstripe I just ordered. 3M adhesive sheets, I ordered 4, because I know I will screw it up at least twice. :rolleyes:

Dan - depends how they glued the label. They used to come off a roll like the stickers you can buy for kids. If that's still the case, it should peel right off with a little finesse.

Don't do it! The label is very much part of the guitar's originality. Every time I've bought a second-hand Gibson missing the sound-hole label I've felt like it's incomplete.

Although I see you've already swapped out the pickguard, so....
