I have a small piece of the headbox decal peeling on a NIB Metallica. When i push it down it looks fine but peels after a few hours. Is there a specific adhesive i can use to make this stick better yet not make it look weird? Thanks in advance!

Mine did this and I called my distributor and they sent me a new decal set.

Did you try using a hair dryer to heat it up alittle? If its not peeling to bad it might work

If its only peeling alittle it can work but no promises. It all depends on if the adhesive can get tacky enough from the heat but if the adhesive is no good no more it wont work. Ive done it before and it worked and didnt work just depends on how much is peeling and if adhesive is good still.

Otherwise if it doesnt work just call your distributor or if you bought it used call Stern directly and they will send new decal.
