    I'd want money knocked off because it has scribble on the scratchplate.

    Almost heaven
    I thought the COA mentioned was intended for the autograph.

    I love it when vindicated for correctly assessing the needed items to get the highest price and some pinhead pops up with Oh there is no cert for these. Yes and Yes.
    Oh and the auction site for Great Britain and the UK just shows to go you that when you die, wifey poo is going to find all your guitars and have some auction house clown make all the money off her.

    Oh the signature is clearly a fake. The guitar is the only item that has value in the whole situation. Again and again I see autographs on guitars. When groups would come around and perform they used to have giveaways from the local radio station. The press person would come in buy 5 of the cheapest guitars, and usually they were squiers. The artist was given some sort of magic marker. *not usually a sharpie as their popularity had not grown yet. Said artist would scribble some sort of rune on the guitar, be it the pickguard or body, and then they were given out. I have always held that a $100 guitar is not a $500 guitar because there is what is represented as a famous signature on it. Unless there is letters of authenticity, provenience perhaps a photo of them signing the guitar, then it is a defaced $100 guitar. Get a wood chipper or donate it to Play it Forward to get instruments in to the hands of children.

    Not really, just in general at the one post wonders who pop in with the is this real what is it worth, can I sell it for a million dollars because my aunt's neighbor saw Sinatra once, and then held this guitar posts. Your comment was valid, and yes I was vague about the reference which could mean either the signature or the guitar COA, and even with both, the guitar is worth what the guitar is worth. That scribble with scotch tape over it, reduces the value, but that is my not so humble opinion.
