So i was shopping for a new guitar looking for something amazing with the two grand i had to spend... All I can say is some of these signiature models are ridiculous and make me wonder: "Has carrot top ever used these things as props in his comedy act?" Just click on the links and you'll get a good laugh. All i can say is who theee fooook would want a guitar named after them and have it look like betty boop in guitar form with polka dots? Oh by the way this is just what I found.. if you've got a better guitar that's good for a laugh you should go ahead and post it.

Buddy guy, that's who. When you're as awesome as he is you can do whatever the hell you want. I think it looks pretty cool.

P.S. Fix your links.

I like polka dots, and I like Buddy Guy, so the look of the guitar is great, because you know its him. The Traveler looks cool, but it might be tonally one-sided.

When you're as awesome as Buddy Guy, your guitar can look however the heck you want it too, and it'll still kick major ash.

The red with white polka dots does look a bit silly. The black one is nice, though- I think that's what he plays. Those other two are pretty idiotic though. I didn't know anyone actually cared about KISS.

Maybe it was his monumental way of saying... "I'm so badass... that I can stick polka dots on mah guitarrzzz, cuz you know why? My name's Force, Force to be reckoned with... nice to meet you.."

Nothin wrong with a polka dot guitar, the great Randy Rhoads had his infamous polka dot flying v. and yes, I agree with everyone else here about Buddy Guy

I used to like Kiss, when I was 12, I give them respect, cause their still kickin, but I would not play those guitars, I didn't even click the link, I've seen them, and it's truly a waste of my time. But there are alot (almost too many) of people who do care about Kiss. I am not one of them

I really do give respect to kiss since they were doing something completely different than anything out there at the time they first came out... but to be honest i never thought they were as epic as all the hype made them to be. I really never cared much for them either...

Ever heard of the New York Dolls?

On subject, I don't give a crap what they have on their guitar as long as their making amazing music like both Buddy Guy and Randy Rhoads have. If you think it looks stupid, then think of at as motivation to stay clear of sig guitars which tend to be overpriced anyway.
