Re: Getting guitars signed backstage? How to
When I went to g3 03', I got meet and greet passes through here sort of. I contacted either vai's or satch's fan sites directly explained I was a member and lo and behold they were generous enough to hook me up with 2 passes! I took two guitars with me, a friend carried the other one and they had a check in area. I was a little nervous but they took my id and made a photocopy, tagged my guitars and only I could pick them back up. Not sure if it works the same as that was 10 years ago, but you have to think they would be prepared for folks to bring the guit stiks in.
OTOH, IbanezFreak has a great point, just take the backplates. The guitars I got signed never get played so the sigs don't get worn off. Taking just the plates kind of solves both issues.
