    Found this at the Ole Goodwill for 20 bucks. Its a knockoff strat. Anyways, can anyone identify the band that signed the pickguard? 1st person to guess it rights wins a cyber high five, and a lot of street cred. Let me know what you think, and thank you!!!!

    Is it 'Fred Durst' by the bridge pickup?

    So Limp Bizkit?

    I have an old Zippo lighter, left behind by my father. It is engraved with the words "we had a wonderful time" (or something like that; I don't have it here at the moment). And signed, completely illegibly. It must have been some important event for my father, or he wouldn't have saved it, I guess. And who gets a Zippo lighter engraved anyway?

    Zippo lighters were often engraved as an option when purchasing them back in the 80's. A girlfriend bought me one and had it engraved with something.

    I can't make out any of those signatures. The upside down one looks like Flo Rider with a scribble beneath it.

    Almost looked like a Brian Johnson on there.

    That's Led Zeppelin signing other people's names as their own.

    Sorry, not to be exclusive, but I only interpret signatures on right handed starts.

    Looks kind of like someone took a sharpie and purposely filled in some of the signatures areas so they are unreadable.

    Having been formally trained as a Handwriting Analyst, I’d have to say the chances of someone accurately identifying the writing based on your pic alone is very remote.
    Near impossible really.

    One of my father's souvenirs from WWII in England is a pewter "hip" flask, circa 1944-45, engraved to him, with love from Joan. (most he would ever acknowledge was she was a "friend")
    I still have my Zippo lighter from high school (almost fifty years ago) that I scratched an "X" on the bottom, cause my best friend had an exact one, and we would get them mixed up.

    Looks like Flo something among the readable names on there. I'm not going to download the picture and flip it around to figure it out. Nor turn my monitor upside down.

    oh, and if there's six signatures on there it must be Brian Epstein as well!

    If that's the case they shoulda knocked the price down to $5.

    Several bands. I can clearly make out Bangles and Floyd Pink. Not sure about the others. Great find. I love Floyd Pink. Interestingly enough, when I saw them, Bangles were the opener. I think it was back in '70, the year before I was born. Good times.
