So when I started getting rock bands and rock musicians to sign initially I would buy guitars but needless to say that became quite expensive and of course there are only so many guitars you can keep in your car at one time.
I quickly discovered the wonderful world of electric guitar Stratocaster pickguards. And of course these I could take anywhere with me and get signed in any place.
My idea was to eventually put my pickguards on a guitar and display them unfortunately in many cases I never got around to that and as you can see from the attached photos I have more guitars and a larger collection than I will ever be able to display.
I came to the conclusion that my best option was to offer these incredible pieces of music memorabilia to the public. Since I recognized I will not be able to take advantage of these awesome pieces and put them on a Stratocaster as I originally had planned to do.
I therefore have decided to offer my relics at a fraction of their true market value.
You will receive the exact guard pictured here and I can assure you that what you are receiving is 100% authentic as I personally obtained the signature which you see here and I will provide you with certifiable information which supports my claim this will include exact location and date of where I obtained the signatures and I will include signing photos as well when posted.
Many companies offer an opinion of authenticity which essentially is not backed by anyscientific criteria in reality it is nothing more than an opinion.
I've included pictures here of legendary artists such as Jimi Hendrix Noel Gallagher Eric Clapton playing the Stratocaster guitar the list goes on and on. And the beautiful thing is the pickguard which you see here can be attached to any Stratocaster style guitar which you choose and at the end of the day you will have an item that will cost you at least 50 to 75% less then if you were to purchase a guitar signed.
The old saying more bang for your buck really applies here! H
However, these pickguards are one-of-a-kind so do not miss your opportunity to purchase as they will not last long as I have priced them well below fair market value Happy Hunting
