Subject: RE: Why Musicians Put Their Name on Instrmt?
For the same reason footballers have signature boots or cricketers signature bats and pads.
Occasionally, guitar specials are through the guitarist helping with the design, which if they genuinely help can lead to a good guitar. The Gordon Giltrap model Vintage make at a reasonable price being a good example, or Martin Simpson's work with PRS. I doubt Eric Clapton had a hand in a Martin design that was old before he was born though....
