There are many types of guitar in the world. But not all guitars are created equal.
No, we're not talking about electrified and acoustic, or how many strings they have. We're talking about signature guitars; the kind that are given the blessing of a rock god with a flick of a pen and a kiss from the stars. To some guitar collectors (or in some cases, newbies, depending on the celebrity and brand!), signature guitars are the difference between holy and unholy tones.
This week, we want to separate the dodgy cash-ins from the good stuff with this question:
What is the best signature guitar ever?
The rules are simple: the guitar has to be officially endorsed by a musician. That usually means they've put their name to it, and in most cases they've had some input into what the guitar actually does. It's hard to guarantee their level of involvement, but the best guitars probably took some input from the legends that let them grace their name on the product.
Post one nomination per comment, and up vote those you agree with. We'll round up the results in a shred-tastic top 10 list this Friday!
