Having guitars signed

Hi everyone,

First off wanted to let everyone know that I just bought my VIP ticket for the Mr. Big show on August 12th in Chicago. Now, with this event I will be meeting all the guys and having things signed and what not. This is the first time doing something like this and I figured what the hell you only live once and it took them 15 years to come back stateside.

So here's my question. I am planning on having my guitar signed. I'm not sure which one to do or how to protect the signatures afterwards.

My guitars are a black Ibanez RG560 from 1991. My second guitar is a 2006 Fender Mexi with Candy Apple Red finish. I would like to have my Ibanez signed since its' PG but I don't know because of it being black Oh and my Fender has a lot more sentimental value so it would be nice to add something else to it.

Thank you for your help.

Silver Sharpie on the trem cavity cover. Protect it with a few dustings of clearcoat. If you ever decide to sell it, you can remove the cover...

This. Please. Don't have him sign anywhere on the neck or body unless you're into decreasing the value of your guitar. I'd make it easy on yourself and just bring the cover with you instead of the guitar.

For protection, go to a car detailing shop and ask them if you can buy a small amount of 3M Clear Bra.

Of if you'd like, I've got some of this stuff sitting around and I can sell you a squae of it for $5. PM me if you're interested.

Re: Having guitars signed

what's up man? i'll be at that show as well. how did you get the VIP? was it through house of blues or the band? i would love to bring my pgm to have paul sign. I have never protected my guitars...black sharpie works great. I had Steve and Billy sign my 7vwh in 2002. Still looks like new. they signed on the body past the trem so i can't wipe it off with palm muting.

Red face Re: Having guitars signed

Go buy a nice looking cheap guitar and have the band sign it on the body, and then use that guitar to get other signatures, thus making it a museum piece of your memories.

Re: Having guitars signed

Andy Timmons and Joe Satriani both signed and played one of my custom creations, back of the headstock works great. Here's a tiny vid of Andy rockin' my custom guitar unplugged

Re: Having guitars signed

When I bought my js6000 it was signed by satch, and the previous owner had put some thin "skin" on it. Worked really really well and is removable.

Signed pickgaurds are cheesy as hell in my opinion.
