good point on where NOT to put them though.
these days I gotta write everything down, can't remember verbatim anymore

but that sticker just Shop's name & #, not even useful data like string specs

+1... sometimes I don't even make it home from dealer/service
before I pullover and scrape off any new decal or freebie keychain

aha... I didn't send it there for stringing, original owner did - arrived used/strung

Bigger mystery is why o.o like natgut for cross with smooth poly mains. Wierd!

there's a perfect sticker sized area on the other arm of the yoke where
Prince advises "Made in China" & "Use Prince High Performance Strings"

why coverup the valuable barcode instead

Had intentionally avoided showing the 1st pic of before I started peeling.


In the (very) old days stringers used to put round or octagonal stickers
on the buttcap. Then 80s think it was Prince that started doing long stickers
for inside the yoke before everyone else followed suit.

I like string specs on the sticker, maybe also who (person) strung it & when.
Being a tinkering geek, I'd like note of what machine it was done on.
Don't need "when to restring", its marketing fluff.
