Seen on ABC News 20/20 and Inside Edition, Autograph discovered that American Royal Arts has been using photos altered to make it look as if celebrities are signing their questionably autographed guitars. This album contains the fake photos and the original signing photos their guitars were inserted into.
ARA president Jerry Gladstone claims that while the photos may be altered, the signed guitars are genuine, but spokespersons for the Eagles and Led Zeppelin disagree. Autograph magazine has never seen a signed guitar from ARA's supplier, Gallery of Dreams, that they thought was genuine. One of the executives listed on ARA's Executive Profiles page is the infamous forensic document examiner Christopher Morales, whose letters of authentication are widely considered a sign of forgery among autograph experts.
