A BB signature on his signature Gibson would be cool and I'd pay a bit more for that. Other than that, it would have no value to me.

A signed Lucille would make sense to me.

I don't want a guitar somebody wrote on no matter who wrote on it. It doesn't devalue it for me, its a deal breaker. I won't buy a guitar with a signature on it. I don't even like signature guitars that much and have never bought one.

I'd jigsaw out the name and frame that.
Naw I'd leave the guitar intact. A squier with a famous signature would look cool to most that would see it. Only us guitar nerds no one guitar from another.
I bought my daughter a pink squier when she was a little girl. At 26 she still has it and never took the interest to learn to play. She likes it on a stand in the corner or where it is now on a wall hanger. She thinks its cool as part of the decor.
I bought my Grand daughter a Taylor GS Mini as she has more of an interest in music so hopefully she'll stay with it. No one gets to sign that one.

I have been at concerts at the local Casino. There has been a low dollar Squire sitting on display in the lobby with a sign saying the winner will get a meet and greet, including this guitar, to be signed by the band.

Sometimes you just have to take what you win. Some must believe that this kind of thing is priceless to someone. To each his own.

My level of hero worship doesn't extend as far as getting some celebrity's signature on a guitar. I love Rory Gallagher and Pete Seeger but I wouldn't want their signatures on my instruments. Even if I bought a signed guitar, I would remove the signature, so I certainly wouldn't pay more for it.

Is BB Kings Autograph worth $2000?. I will never understand why people get guitars autographed, in my opinion unless you plan on holding on to the guitar for life it will actually depreciate the value of the instrument. Thoughts?

Holy crap !!! He signed my LP Custom in Ottawa back in the 80's. Its long gone now. If only i would have known. LOL. Dont really care about famous people signing my guitars. My Tele is signed by regular players and signers that i have had the pleasure of playing with. To me thats worth all the money in the world.

It's worth $2000.00 if someone is willing to pay that. To me it would be worth what the guitar is worth without the signature.

The only guitar I would have signed is an inexpensive guitar with as many signatures from different band members as possible. It would be more for momento purposes than trying to increase its value.

I have a pickguard signed by Jeff Healey, Tinsley Ellis, Duke Robillard & Magic Slim. All incredible players that I'm happy to have met (had a beer with Duke at the Silver Dollar) and some sentimental value as Jeff was my first guitar hero.

Scribble whatever on your guit and tell people it's so and so.
Some of them sign so sloppy that you can't read them anyways.
