    I had a friend in law school that had a hideous plastic wrap around his expensive, fancy cell phone (before smart phones). I asked him why he bothered with that ugly wrap.

    He said to protect the finish of the phone.

    I asked him why he wanted to protect the finish.

    He replied that it the phone would look ugly with scratches.

    I asked him whether he thought his phone looked ugly wrapped in that plastic, and whether it was worth preserving the beautiful finish of the phone if the only way to achieve that is to wrap the phone in that ugly wrap, so you never actually see the finish.

    He looked at his phone and tore off the wrap.

    So . . . That's my opinion.

    I left the plastic on one of my guitars for years then one day decided to peal it off. It left terrible residue. I was able to clean it off but what a pain. It was all over the gold colored pick ups. I thought for sure that the finish would rub offf as I worked to remove the sticky gunk.

    Glad that you decided to keep the guitar.
    As for the plastic foil:
    Are you eating your candybar with or without the plasticwrap?
