    I bought my Rusty Cooley RC7 second hand from a guy who had lessons with Cooley, who bought the guitar directly from him and had it signed.

    So I have an actual *signed* signature model which became my favourite guitar, from someone I have never heard a song from outside of instruction vids.

    Assuming you are old enough to remember the sound of a dial-up modem, I think you just didn't realise that what you were hearing was actually a recording of a guitar...

    My bud still has his koa Ibanez Reb Beach and he didn't even know who's sig it was when he took it off the rack.

    I still have a 5150 block letter and Van Halen just doesn't do it for me. When that head came out, i couldn't figure out how the hell Eddie was the one to help create that monster. =

    It's pretty cool to see more sig models out there. Sure they usually cost more but they almost always come with neat features or options that just dont' show up anywhere else.

    Yep, that's exactly why I like sig models. They generally try to be more visually unique and result in cooler guitars. This doubly so since I'm a big ESP fanboy and until recently, they had this tendency to do mostly black for everything, which bores me to tears. So if I wanted a guitar that wasn't black, a signature model it was.

    Brutal. (Yes I remember that sound well.) I have huge respect for Mr Cooley's playing chops, just for the record.

    I tend to go for sig models too. They're interesting. Universe, Loomis, Stef Carpenter... oh oh that's another one! Cool guitar, but I've never sat through an entire Deftones song.

    I would love to have the Ibanes Tom Qual model, and I dont listen to that type of music.. I dont like it when shred is played over elevator music, and nothing really stands out to remember, that type of "jam over a lame backing track" thing makes alot of boring/similar guitarists.

    Yeah, it isn't a signature model.
