Question Stickers on guitar: are they safe?

A friend of mine is willing to put a sticker on the body of his guitar. As far as he told me, the sticker is "laminated PVC". Before he do that, I alerted him that any abrasive stuff could damage the finish, or at best leave some goo the day he gets tired and wants to remove it.

But regarding damaging the finish, is it really a concern? Is there any type of sticker that could potentially damage the finish?

Re: Stickers on guitar: are they safe?

More importantly, you should remind him there's a 9/10 chance of him looking like a douchebag by putting stickers on his guitar.

...and yes, sometimes stickers damage guitars. Look at some old jems with weird color spots left over because someone decided to try and be a 1337 reb3l
