I did not use the stickers for two reasons.
1) Vanity.... I did not want to sticker up the Les Paul.
2) More importantly, I was very concerned that it would become a crutch. I really want to learn so I figured forcing myself to read "via dot" was in my best interest in the long run.
It's getting very close to second nature now... sorta.
Anywho, different strokes.
