I am wondering how I might go about getting my Ric 620 autographed without damaging the finish. Is there a particular sort/brand of paint pen I should use? Will the autograph "take" to the guitar without getting rubbed or sweated off? I'd definitely appreciate hearing from anyone who might have some experience with this. Thanks,

Daniel

Just have the pickguard signed. They are always replaceable.

Howdy Daniel,

I have 2 of my Ric's autographed (both by Roger McGuinn)(330 and 370/12RM). He used a permanent sharpie marker and signed the 370/12RM both on the back and on the pickguard. So far no problems with wear or the finish. On the 330, he signed the top front horn and the pickguard. Again, no problems with the autograph or the finish on the guitar. I would suggest that if you get the pickguard autographed as well as the guitar to use a replacement pickguard and preserve the autograph. I would NOT add any lacquer or any other foreign substance to the guitar.

Steve

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll get the pickguard signed so I can get another if starts to fade or wipe off. My 620 can get pretty grimy at shows so I'm always pretty worried about the finish. I think I should start playing shows exclusively in, like, Alaska so I stop sweating on the guitar. Thanks again, ya'll.

Go over to my thread on Rickresource / Reflections Of A Curmudgeon and you will see Paul W's advice to me on the very same question.

Roger McGuinn signed my pickguard as well. A certain luthier in Seattle made me a plexi type cover for the guard to protect it. Looks very sharp!

Howdy,

Would love to get my hands on one of those plexi type covers! Sounds like a great idea!!
