As a rule, I'm not a fan of signatures on guitars, other than the back of the headstock. Having said that, I used to own an old white Kramer guitar signed by all 4 members (at the time) of Van Halen. I sold it when the autographs started to fade pretty badly. The guy who had it signed for me didn't use the Sharpie I gave him and used some random marker. I couldn't find anybody to shoot a clearcoat on it because they didn't know what pen, so they couldn't guarantee they wouldn't destroy the signatures. I wish I still had that one.
Back of the headstock for sure...my Tremonti from this years PRS Experience.
I had my Tremonti SE signed by Mark Tremonti.
He was one of the nicest guys you could ever meet.
I only wish I had a pic to validate the signature.
Oh well ... I know it's legit. :proud:
I'm good with Paul or the sig namesake on the back of headstock or on control cover, no top though.
I have a John Connolly custom Les Paul and I got him to sign the electronics cover. I would never get the front of the body signed.
I wouldn't even let David Gilmour sign the front of my guitar... Pretty sure he wouldn't so no worries!
Fron and back of headstock is fine with me along with the control plates.
I've also had a few electronics covers signed, but I typically leave those in the case.
I do have one framed, along with one of the proof pages from the PRS Book...
That is a gorgeous job of framing Jamie. I even like how the wood grain of the frame complements the color of the guitars in the proof. Real nice.

These two gentlemen are pretty significant to me.
Thanks! I remember picking thru the frame samples and finding that burl...
