that's why I'd rather have the white mirror guitar, than the dragon...I've had the pleasure to own an Ibanez JS100 guitar. All around excellent guitar. My only beef was Joes name on the 21st fret.
I had it removed. The guitar tech did a great job, couldn't tell. I did not buy the guitar because of Joe, or desire to be him. I got it because how awesome it played and sounded.
IMO about Signature guitars, I dig the fact they are based off successful artists specs, but they need to leave room for the person buying it to make it there own. Maybe not everyone will know whos guitar your playing, but when the artists stick their name right out front...come on now. I guess if your collecting thats one thing, but what fun is that.
I totally respect Jimmy for putting it on the back of the headstock.
No right or wrong here....just stating a different opinion.

It's what the original probably had...That is pretty funny that they would put the cheapo junk tuners on a Page Tele.
I mean do you think Page has cheap tuners on his Tele? Probably not I am thinking.
The first thing is take those off and put on Shallers, obviously.
And the signature on the back of the headstock, that's just weird.
What's up w/ that?
At least they got something made in USA.

I thought about getting one of those EVH (Fender Mx) red striped guitars. I'd probably have to paint it though. I couldn't play "Eddie's" guitar...
It's what the original probably had...
history, Jeff Beck owned the Tele & it became band property (Yardbirds)
early pic of Jimmy:
then he added some discs, for a psychedelic look:
then, he stripped it down & drew the dragon on it:
after that, he went on tour w/ Zeppelin & a friend, took it & had it professionally repainted w/o Jimmy's consent/knowledge. When he got back from tour, he was surprised & said that the guitar was ruined.
I think he made a bit too much out of it, because he said the electronics didn't work (a pickup or something) & that the paint ruined the tone, so he yanked the neck off & put it on another Tele & said that nobody will ever hear/see that body again...
I mean, no doubt, he was (beyond) upset, who wouldn't be, but, I doubt that the body tone was ruined beyond restoration, nor the electronics. Probably just a bad solder joint...
