High rpm = crazy heat.
Are you absolutely sure its protective film and not a plastic gloss layer. I bought a pearl pickguard, peeled off the protective plastic and later found a small piece of plastic lifting near a point on the guard. I peeled off all the plastic (difficult) and ended up with a matt finish pickguard - crap - bought another and now I know better.
Take advantage of the modular nature of Fenders. Buy a new pickguard and move everything over. Just be sure to get the right version for what you have. I did not like the look of the white PG on my 2013 Am Std. So I changed it to a Red Tortoise I got from Sweetwater. $30 or $40 if I remember right but no worries about hurting anything with heat or chemicals . Plus you can change the look if you like. There are many places out there to buy custom PG`s.
Red tort? Just replace it.
same thing happened to me with a 2004 american deluxe. denatured alcohol took care of it with zero damage.
WD-40 is advertised to remove leftover glue from stickers. I use it on my pickguards to remove residue.
Thanks for all the replies! I’ll try one of these solutions
Could never figure out why anyone would leave plastic film, stickers, tags, etc. on new instruments, or anything else for that matter. Unless you’re planning to return it, why bother? And if you’re planning to return it, why buy it in the first place?
Put it in your freezer for 30 minutes, shrinkage will separate the two and the covering will peel right off. Sometimes cold is our friend.
