I think it is a great idea.
I hate when there is a signature guitar that is way different from the artist's instrument.
Like the jem ,steve says ( he went through several necks to find the right one).
That sucks monkeys cause i want his guitar lol.
Then you got different trems on them ( years before now).
They should mimic every detail that makes the guitar special.
is one of my fav's cause they do the necks identical to eachother to digitaly get the coumpound radius that joe has.
To get off subject i hate when you get an artist gear and the sound is off cause they hide the way they use it. Like rack effects and mods to amps then sell you a base model that is useless to get the right tone sound you was looking for from the artist.
If you sell a signature model it needs to be as close as possible to what the artist has and not an empty box like a movie prop.
If steves guitar said andrew sucked on it , well thats the way i would want it to come to me as a signature axe.
If i wanted a guitar that just looked like his i would just buy a new rg and be just as happy.
P.S. leave the evo crack out of the relic Lol.
