leave it

Personally, I'd leave the autograph as is. I wouldn't make a big deal out of it, but I think it adds a bit of character to the guitar and might be a conversation starter. Then again Neil Finn is one of my favorite songwriters. I saw the brothers Finn on their last tour, excellent. Just leave it, it's not hurting the guitar at all.

He loves it... I thought it was a nice way to ruin a perfectly nice-looking guitar.
I know, right? Imagine having that seocnd rate hack sign your guitar. What the hell does he have to do with the electric guitar, anyway? I've barely even heard of the guy.
