    Only the finest tonepaper and genuine hide glue for the best possible tone transference.

    So it's really more of an investment than an expenditure...

    This case is from the 1840s. Who knows when the stickers were applied. Someone decided to put packing tape right over the top of one though...facepalm.

    Agreed but, one could just put no stickers on anything at all.

    Agreed, except I have an old Hendrix strings sticker on a homemade speaker cab.
    I would not put stickers on anything of resale value. One day I will die and I don't want to cheapin'
    any resale value of any of my gear. My gear should resale at $80,000 (low figure), if I don't deface them.

    I will acknowledge that some vintage stickers may be cool but...

    how much is a vintage case nowadays?

    Do you want it covered with stickers?
    If you are methodical you can remove those unwanted stickers.

    My main reference was to guitars and amps.

    I actually bought some water slides to put on a couple of guitars but I could never bring myself into applying them.

    My point exactly. If companies want me to advertise, they pay me.
