Many new guitars come with a sticker placed on the pickguard but unfortunately if this isn’t removed quickly it can really mess up the pickguard underneath!

The sticker blocks the Ultra Violet light from hitting that part of the pickguard and the rest of the pickguard tends to get a sun tan – it’s darkens
