    I'd just leave it alone. It's part of the history of the instrument. And you know Paul himself wrote "TO JOHN" on it, so that must make it super awesome, right? Plus there's that squiggle under the name that goes through the P and R so it might look a bit weird if you take the name off. And then there's always a chance that you slip and eff up Paul's sig...

    Well, I'm still trying to figure out the amount that it bothers me. How much do I really care that there is a signature on there? And how much do I really care that it says To JOHN? I honestly don't know. I had a guitar that had his signature on the back plate, it did nothing for value or anything, but it was cool! I think Garrett has it right, its kinda all or nothing.

    Question about the PTC..would they remove ALL the paint from the back of the neck and give it a wood finish? Nice and silky smooth? What would something like that cost?

    Yeah! I've got a 2nd gen Santana SE or a Tremonti SE I'll gladly send for a Custom 22. Neither one says To John anywhere.

    I couldn't send my CU22 because the back plate is signed the same way, "To John" with Paul's signature.

    So, if anything you should just help me get a collection of "To John" Custom 22s together.
