Why are Jimmy Page signed guitars priced high? Are they very rare or is it simply because it's Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, etc.? Continue

What is a fair market price of a legitimately certified Jimmy Page signed guitar in very good condition? The signature nicely done. Thanks...Continue

2 PSA/DNA Questions...

      PSA/DNA claims to place a "mark" on certified items that can only be seen w/ a special "calibrated laser".1. How do we find out where the invisible "DNA strand/mark" is located on a certain item, and are we able to view this ourselves at home or is special equipment needed?2. If a clear coat spray (not paint, of course) were to go over the mark would it still be readable? (I'm referring to like a guitar or pick guard.)Thanks...See More

"Just my personal opinion, but I hardly see any difference between a guitar body signed and a pick guard signed. To me, personally they both are equally "cool". :)"

"signed on the body is worth more than pick guard and usually rarer. most people never did full guitars but did pickguards"

"Does your answer apply the same to pick guards as well? I guess I really meant either/or actually. Thanks...."

"The guard is a bit of plastic signed, the guitar may never have been seen by the artist. To me is just a way to increase $. I do not like guitars signed in the guards."

Michael Kasmar-AutographPros.com replied to db's discussion Jimmy Page Prices
"In many cases an autograph on the body of the guitar can command a higher premium than one signed on the pickguard.  It's just a matter of if the seller prices them right and waits for the right buyer really.  In regards to someone…"

"I guess I should specify. Is all of this true regarding pick guards as well? Are they just as rare and valued, etc.? To me personally I see very little difference at all between a signed guard and the actual guitar."
