    Luke III Tumescent Autograph Rubbed Off

    Would you still buy it for less than $2000? Just wondering what the opinion would be if the missing autograph would affect the value that much.

    I think it really comes down to do you like the guitar, is it worth the selling price. You can always get it resigned if that's important too you.

    Good luck, Glenn |B)

    It's just written on with silver pen. The numbering on the guitar and condition are far more important to the value than a bit of paint on the tremolo cavity cover.

    Curious why the previous owner didn't get a new cavity cover to preserve it, but yeah, if you like the guitar and it's in good condition, I'd definitely go for it at that price.

    What are you after... a fabulous guitar or an autograph?
    Love that dog hair finish.... If I got along with the LIII neck better, I'd be all over one for that price.
    Enjoy Your Balls!!!

    Siggy rubbed off?

    Pfffttt! It's worthless now...

    But, being the nice guy I am, I'll flip you $1,000 bucks for it.

    Cash on the barrel head - and I'm not telling the IRS if you don't tell the IRS.

    Yeah, I'm charitable like that!

    I have one and can tell you that when I'm playing it the autograph is the furthest thing from my mind.

    Stunning guitar in every way and at $2000 an absolute steal.

    Buy it

    I just bought it. It was well under $2000 so I think I got a great deal. Just waiting for to arrive.

    I didn’t have any pictures. It was on Reverb. It’s the HSS version. Everything I have is HH
