I just got a 1995 360 its still in its original case with keys and the allen wrench still sealed it. The manual came with it as well as the warranty card. Theres a rickenbacker sticker on the body were these guitars sold with the sticker or was it put on after.If it was sold like that should i leave it on or remove it?

Assuming you mean the USA sticker, we apply the sticker at the factory to the pickguard or pickup, depending on the model, and never to the body.

There's also a model/serial sticker inside the circuit cutout and the would be applied directly to the body, but out of general view obviously.

this Rickenbacker sticker is perfectly placed right below the sound hole it even curves around the lower portion of the sound hole. the stickeris exactly the same shape as the Rickenbacker logo on the headstock, except the label in question is black with gold lettering and the one on the headstock is white with black lettering.

Jeez, this is definitely an overenthusiastic former owner...if it's the humongous Mylar case sticker, my condolences.

You should try to remove it using a hairdryer to heat it SLIGHTLY...the adhesive can make the varnish on the guitar swell if it's left on there too long...
