All kidding aside, that autograph probably isn't worth jack shit. But then again, neither is the guitar. So if you don't mind playing a guitar that's autographed by a second-rate nobody, I wouldn't worry about it.

If he's still alive and gigging it will probably be worth less than if he's dead, though, because any fan could probably walk up to him and get an autograph, and unless he's a totall asshole, he'd probably sign their guitar for nothing. Maybe you should go kill him.
someone should do you first, sunshine.

Was Neil Finn in Squeeze? I didn't know that. He is a great pop songwriter.

Hammertime, I am typing this on my beautiful, well packaged, very elite Macintosh computer. How about them Apples?

back to the topic. . .autographs, unfortunately aren't worth much (if anything) these days without a certificate of authenticity. It comes down to the value to YOU. If you want it there, keep it. If you don't, then rub it off. It's not going to command any value based on the autograph.

I think he's sold a few more albums than most people here. Fine songwriter.

On topic, a good long auction on eBay would probably allow you to get it to someone to whom the autograph would matter.

i seriously doubt hammertime has been selling millions of records since 1977, tho.
