    Just looks like an illegible scribble to me.

    Anyone know Jimmy? Ask him if he remembers signing a Stratocaster.

    Looking at those pics I'd say that looks about as close to a 62 strat as I do to Marilyn Monroe

    IMG_1223.PNG This is a perfect candidate for Pawn Stars. I'm no expert but the curvature of the "j" looks a little off and the "I" and the "m"

    You're being generous. That fake signature looks nothing like Jimmy's. I know the one on the pickguard (were it genuine) was probably a quick one off, and the one in the ad was probably done with some thought to make it as cool as possible, but still there's not even a semblance.

    Having the original pickups and tweed Fullerton case would make it worth much more than a dubious autograph. We'd all like to see pics of that.

    The one on the picture above looks like every JP signature I have ever seen. The one on the pickguard looks like an illegible scribble.

    It's a Fullerton AVRI.

    Yeah that was tongue in cheek, not being generous :)

    I agree but the early ones are worth what someone is willing to pay and if you look at the reissue site they do go for more than i too am willing to pay.

    COA? AVRIs didn't come with a COA, that's a more recent Custom Shop development.

    Not trying to nitpick you or anything. But the Fullerton tele reissues actually did come with COA's

    Did they? If they had made a '62 Tele back in the Fullerton days I would have done my best to try one. But those 52 Teles are definitely not to my taste in any way whatsoever so I've never had one. It does seem strange that the AVRI Teles had certs but the Strats didn't. Were they proper Custom Shop type COAs with serial number, model etc?

    Here is mine. And yes I would have loved a double bound 62 also.


    Sorry for it being upside down

    The simple solution is to have the pickguard authenticated by one of the autograph authentication services. And it would be worth taking that pickguard off and swapping it with a suitable replacement and selling the two pieces separately.

    There's a Jimmy Page autograph for sale in tomorrows Guitar Auction est £100 to £200 so at best it adds that to the value of the guitar if it's genuine and it will only appeal to a limited market.
