The only sig I currently own that would fit this category is the Fender Mike Mandel P-Bass. It's a fuckin' killer bass (needs a pickup change, though)--the Foo Fighters association is the only thing I *don't* like about it!
In the past, I've owned several sigs by artists I don't care about:
Jackson Futura (Kip Winger sig and the same one Garrett owned)
LTD RA-600 -- great 24.75" shredder that I wish I hadn't sold, but I couldn't pick Rob Arnold out of a police lineup.
LTD JH-600 -- never been a Slayer fan

LTD SC607b. I've never been a fan of the Deftones, never will be, but that was a sweet guitar, lol! I wanted a baritone 7 string and the only disappointment was me not getting on with 7 strings. A friend made an offer and I promptly sold it and got my Charvel.

I have a dean razorback with the explosion finish. It's great in drop A with the right string gauge, but in standard tuning with 9s its just really really heavy to carry around.

I've got one of Vinnie Paul's full size snare drums custom wrapped and signed by him. It's got the rattlesnake wrapping on it.
From the great southern trendkill days
Mine is my Dave Murray Strat. Don't get me wrong, I love Dave Murray and Iron Maiden as much as everyone else does, but I couldn't give 2 shits that it's his sig guitar. It actually has a bit of a story behind it that makes it the perfect guitar for me.
When I started learning guitar there were 3 kinds of guitars to me, Strats, Les Pauls and hollowbodies like Chuck Berry and BB King played. I'm only 27, but I did my best to live under a rock even then.
I wanted to play punk, so I didn't want a guitar like BB King, and I was a teenager so I definitely didn't want a guitar like my dad, so I've always gone for LP styled guitars.
We've always argued like Ford and Chevy guys about Strat vs Les Paul. But when I'd go stay with him on the weekends in high school, I'd stay up until dawn playing his Strat because it's the second best guitar I've ever played. The Les Paul he bought me for a graduation present is #1.
I've tried the LTD and Ibby superstrats, but they didn't cut it. So I started looking at Strats. I found a Dave Murray one, it was a sunburst like my dads, but it had 3 humbuckers, Floyd Rose and a pearl guard, and that's different enough to satisfy my inner teenager. Well I had to text my dad and tell him I finally bought a damn Strat, do you want to borrow it when you play with your band? I re-stringed his for him for a back up and the sumbitch put a pearl guard on his. And he loved how it sounded and how you could really fine tune it with the Floyd Rose. It really doesn't help that my wife keeps reminding me the older I get the more I act like him.
So I put an aged white guard and a Lonestar Beer sticker on mine, and it's back to being different enough because I know he'll bitch about putting a sticker on a guitar.
And my numero uno...
