I wouldn't do it because:
1. The Gibson Nitro laquer is very vulnerable (even some guitar stands attack the laquer) so glueing some sticker on might ruin it forever
2. Those decals usually look really cheap (not fitting right on the edges...) There is a reason why this page does not have a gallery with applied decals on some guitars - because it doesn't look professional
3. Applying those decals correctly is very hard, it's the same with decals on cars. If not done by a pro you will get air bubbles under it.
4. It only covers the front! If you look at your guitar from an angle you can see a totally diffrent color. Looks bad imho...

If I would want a design like this, I would get my whole guitar airbrushed instead of putting some sticker on it.

I checked the site, and read info, they say it can't be damaged, you can move it all around.
By the way this is excellent site...

I wouldn't do this for same reasons Zakk mentioned.

+ There are no videos or success stories on the web site so I wouldn't trust it much.

I wouldnt do it either on a nitro-laquer - its so sensitive that even put the guitar in the wrong type of guitar stand will make damage to the guitars back.... (if the rubber is of the wrong type on the stand, which is the case of cheap ones)
