    That plastic is basically the guitar's packaging. You essentially haven't taken it out of its packaging. Go fix that now!!

    Remember, it's a pick guard. The thing itself is a protective covering for the top of the guitar. Adding another layer of protective covering to what is itself a consumable, protective covering is really just gilding the lily, no?

    Gotta take it off - over time it dries out and makes a mess and leaves stuff behind. Take it off now while you can still cleanly do so.

    If you want to keep it on, then I suggest you scrape the "Made in U.S.A." sticker off a neighbor's Rickenbacker when they're not looking. This will restore balance to the world.

    You just destroyed the resale value. Didn’t you know all Guitars must now be embalmed and never played? :)

    Leave it on, put the guitar in a locked up shadowbox and stare at it from afar....

    Well, because you removed the pick guard plastic, I can only offer you seven bucks for it. :)

    It is absolutely stunningly beautiful.

    Had the Tenny I just bought not been available, that is precisely the Guitar I would have bought.
