    I have always been drawn to the Gibson Custom Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess. I could never afford one but if I had the money for a custom shop artist series guitar I think that would be the one I would want to own.

    I never liked the signature stuff, be it a guitar or anything else. I think it's kind of cheesy, lol.

    Although the Epiphone Brent Hinds V is sweet lookin'.

    I really like my Matt Heafy LP. It has the axcess heal at the neck joint which is great. The neck is also a little beefier than a slim taper but not a baseball bat.

    I also LOVE the Epiphone Explorer Artisan which is a signature for the guitarist for Bring Me the Horizon. The bridge pickup is amazing, like a 498T but smoother and fuller without being even kinda muddy and the P94 in the neck with a hidden coil to cancel hum is superb. Gorgeous axe too.

    I get what your saying "its cheesy to copy off some one else" but i see it like this, who out there can build a guitar that you like? Who has the same taste in a guitar setup that you like? wood choice, pickups, the neck and knob layout?

    Ive never tried a RB Voyager i just like the look of the guitar, i like he chose a natural finish and the types of wood he chose.

    I cant stand gold hardware and i dont like where he has his volume but other then that its one of a few body styles i kinda liked for a signature guitar.

    I only have one signature guitar, Clapton Strat. So I guess it’s my best/least and everything in between signature guitar. I do love it.

    everywhere you wanna be.
    im not really in to sig guitars. most of the time they are so over priced and
    rarely are they even what the artist plays. there is a rare exception every so often.
    in this case i would have to pick the Robert Cray strat.
    its a beautiful hard tail strat that sounds and plays amazing. plus its affordable

    now if i i were into signature guitars i would have to go with Ace Frehley Budokan
    or JP's Majesty.

    Meh, stock for me unless Alvin puts out a signature build. Guaranteed to be unique!

    Regret selling my Jim Root tele which was really versatile. Now have a Pat Smear Hagstrom which is a very nice guitar. Sold my Slash AFD because all I did was polish it. It was a great guitar though. I own a Cobain Jag because I got it ridiculously cheap. Its surprisingly good. I don't like the idea of signature guitars, but they are often very good. The Jim Adkins tele looks like it might be great.
