Signature on My VWH

Steve Vai signed my guitar right below where my arm rests on the guitar when I'm playing. I touched part of the V and it came off as you can see in the pics.


I still have the exact sharpie he signed it with, so I can fix the little missing portion of the V in Vai. I am thinking of getting it cleared, i guess that's the only way to protect it if I play it. Is there another practical way I could protect it. And, if I get it cleared, can just the signature be cleared, or does the whole thing have to be cleared?

Re: Signature on My VWH

well its on the face so... I wouldnt just clear that one spot it may look funny..


I personally wouldnt let anyone sign my instruments. Maybe a ticket if it was at a concert, or a piece of paper but I dont like the looks of a signature splayed all over the guitar.

It doesn't add to the value of the guitar for most people but if you wanted to keep it then it's fairly easy to do yourself but a pro prolly wouldn't charge you too much to just put enough on there to protect it.

I wouldn't bother trying to touch it up before you clearcoat it...the V doesn't look that bad, and you might end up making it looking funny if you can't mock the signature just right.

^^ +1 I would just leave it without touching it up. Looks fine to me.

Looks like we're on the same boat. I too wouldn't let anybody sign on my guitar no matter how much I admire em.

I noticed the spot missing in the letter "V". Oh well, still looks cool, i'd put a coat of clear on it if you want to preserve it.
