About Signed Guitars

Signed guitars were recently discussed in an autograph collecting list group. Here were my thoughts...

Most signed guitars are cheap Squire Strats (Fender's bargain basement line) or the low end Fender's made in Mexico known as MexiStrats. To the novice they may look great, but to someone that knows, these guitars look cheap and are the equivalent of getting a photocopy signed (instead of a real glossy photo.)

Frankly, unless it's Elvis or the Beatles, a signed guitar seems like a tremendous waste to me... a musical instrument is meant to be played and it's kind of sad if it's not. I know many won't agree with me, but IMO, a signed guitar is just as loopy as asking a TV star to sign your television.
