    I got mine signed at a Flecktones gig (my first one...spectacular!) in KC in late March.

    I covered the sigs (Victor Wooten and Bela Fleck) with clear packaging tape as it seemed to be the best way to preserve it without disolving the ink.

    PS. That's my "frankie" Peavey. I defretted it a few years ago (refinished it earlier this year) and I added a poplar ramp that I can play on to get a bit higher...pretty sweet. The glare from the flash makes it look like crap though....sad.

    Take that pickguard off and get a new one to replace it...

    Throw that autographed pickguard somewhere safe.

    Why would I get a signature if I don't display it? Besides, it IS safe. See, you couldn't even see the packaging tape over it! It should last until I'm dead...or at least till the next time I see him play...hehe.

    It's not like it's some holy relic now. The pickguard on my gigging bass is signed by Christian Mcbride. I've been gigging with it for 6 months and signature is still pristine. If it wears off it wears off no big deal, it's better than having it sit in the corner collecting dust.
