i have an rg350dx which has been signed by paul gilbert. i am thinking of getting club joe tickets when i see satch and to have it signed by him as well. i figure if i do that, the increased price in selling the guitar might pay for the price of the club joe upgrade. so how much more than your average rg350 is a guitar signed by these two worth?

^Are you serious? PG and Satch will sign a guitar for anyone. It's not rare.


For a fan of PG/Satch or a collector of guitars - Only slightly more.

For someone who isn't a fan - Less than what you'd get for an RG350DX that hasn't had someone they've never heard of scribble all over it.

"I'm so tempted to sig that, Phill" - Sig it then

Unless otherwise stated, assume everything I say is in my opinion.

It'll be worth tens of thousands if you assassinate everyone it's been signed by
ohai little sig.

I wasn't joking I was just guessing. I have no idea what its worth but some sucker might pay that for it.

If it's signed to a certain person it'll be less valuable.
Signatures are overrated.

Not a great deal more, but maybe a cheeky $50 or so. It's more about what it means to you, I guess. It's cooler if you get a photo of them signing it too.

you could prob increase the value of the instrument by 100$ tops, u still have to find a collector or somebody that would like to have a signed guitar, but if u hang on to it for a while then the value will def increase by alot...say PG and Satch both die in a few years that guitar could be worth at least 3 times it's value...i guess it would be kinda like owning a guitar signed by jim morrison or kurt cobain or something like that (maybe a bit less)

just keep it for yourself

then its worth as much as u want it to be

my guess is that it will be worth more than if it wasnt signed.

I'd imagine you'd get a better increase in value if you had them sign their own signature series models... Maybe after they die the value of the guitar will go up, but I can't imagine you selling it for more than a $100 profit.

Yer same my guitar is signed by jimi hendrix, dave grohl and matt bellamy.

Unless you have evidence its worthless and makes the guitar of less value, becuase u can just copy there signature

keep it maintained somewhere until they die

if they live too long for you to care, that guitar thats been in the closet is probably going to be a classic, or not.

It costs the price of the guitar minus how much it costs to get the ink removed...

The only way you'll get any real money out of it is if they've both been dead for a few years.

Get it signed by tons of people, maybe go back in time and get it signed by like, Jimi Hendrix (take a photo, to prove so) and yeah, you're sorted!

have a look at autographed guitars on ebay - theres hundreds of them. they don't command such a high price as you may think.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

Even when Paul Gilbert dies, it won't go much up in price. There seem to be a lot of guitars signed by him around, and on top of that many of them are also his signature guitar.

Also keep in mind that when he dies, odds are he is going to have less and less fans, so the demand will go down as well. Also Paul Gilbert is to my understanding a pretty nice guy about autographs, I would think most all of his obsessive fans have probably gone to shows and gotten things signed anyways.

My Gretsch has been signed by a bunch of folks I've opened for....
Rev. Horton Heat, Link Wray, Th' Legendary Shackshakers, Deadbolt, Scott Biram, Lucero, Unknown Hinson, and a bunch more....the thing is covered with signatures...

The value is, in realistic terms, what YOU think it's worth.
Just don't expect anyone else to agree with you!!!!

I consider my Gretsch priceless, and I'll never sell it.
