I would, but im no pro guitarist, i dont see any reason to keep plastic on your guitar, unless you want it to look bad. What guitar did you get by the way?

Ryan, from one new guitar buyer to another. I saw that plastic on the new ones at the store and people were taking them down, plugging them in and playing them. I wondered the same thing about the plastic protective coating, but then I thought that can't be right. It's just to protect it from the UPS/FED EX drivers who throw things every where and the guys in the back with box cutters.

Had a guitar hanging, just about waist high, and we are going to play these things until the day we die.

Hey Ryan. Congrats on the new guitar. I would remove the plastic. It's just to protect them in the store from people scratching them so they will still look new until someone purchases. Kind of like the white film they put on the top of the cars to keep the bird crap from eating at the paint. Not sure I would keep that on either blink.gif It definitely keeps it looking new though. I dropped my guitar off a few weeks ago for some minor work and they freakin left a few scratches on the stainless pickup covers. Nothing anyone would notice unless they look really close, but since I paid 7 bills for my geetar I would expect I should be the one leaving the first scratch if at all.

Is that the one with the white swirls on the black body and the barbed wire on the fretboard?

Yeah, rip all the plastic off. The only guitar I've heard where the plastic was there for a purpose over the pu's was for a Dean Dime signarure model but I don't remember why that was... I'd probably rip it off there too.
