I think the poll lack a choice. Something like who cares or not an issue. I don't buy them or play them because of whose name is on the headstock or even what famous person may have played one just like it. I play them because I like their playability and/or tonality. So I have two that are either signature models, a Matt Freeman PBass and Robert Cray Strat, and a Casino famously associated with John Lennon. The Matt Freeman just "feels right", the Robert Cray Strat has that same "quack" I always loved in his solos and a nice thicker neck, and after trying several semi hollowbody models with humbuckers I couldn't live with the full hollowbody Casino w/P90s rung all the bells. They all fill a desire and fill it well.
