Things You'll Need
To make a BJ Replica, You'll have to meet the following requirements.
A Blue Stratocaster Guitar is highly recommended, But you can use any guitar and any color you wish, for pics of custom replicas, Click here.
Access to a PC Printer for Printing
A Printer is needed for printing purposes.
Normal A4 Size Paper works well with Printer.
White glue is the Best for sticking stickers since it gets removed easily without harming guitars body and paint. It is widely known as Carpenter Glue or PVA Glue or Fevicol. So look out for it in your country.
For Cutting Stickers out from paper.
Optional: You can also use Sticker paper in place on Normal A4 Size paper, Use it at your own risk because it may be difficult to remove afterwards.
If using Sticker paper then you don't need white glue.

Steps to put on guitar:
Now Get BJ Stickers from here, For Hi-Res version click here.
Print them on Paper using PC Printer. (You Can also use Sticker paper)
After Printing, Use Scissors to cut out the stickers from paper. Place the stickers on your guitar as in your favorite version.
When Satisfied with its look, Stick them using white glue.
After sticking Stickers, Leave your guitar for a few minutes so that the glue Dries off.
Now Plug your guitar into an Amp and Rock On!!!
I'll not suggest the use of Double-sided tape or Sticker Paper etc. for sticking because it'll be hard to remove and can damage guitar body, Use it at your Own Risk.
