To T cut or not to T cut, that is the question.


I would get rid.

Firstly, I think any signatures on the body of a guitar look stupid. I was quite annoyed that MK signed the front of the headstock of mine instead of the back but hey ho.

Secondly, unless you have pictures of them signing, the signatures are basically worthless. In fact, with current MK sig prices they probably devalue the guitar.

Sorry! You asked!

All well and good but who wants an MK sig strat with a lot of pen marks on it??!!

I've never been a fan of getting the body of a guitar signed. If I had the chance for Mark to sign mine, I'd ask him to put it on the back of the headstock where it's less likely to be worn off and doesn't affect the look of the guitar. 

In this case, since the signatures are there, I would seek professional advice from a luthier before I tried to use T-Cut on a nitro finish in case it ruins it completely.
My luthier has a '60's strat that he has sanded or cut a black respray off to expose the original Fiesta red lacquer, but I don't know what he used, and last time I saw it the finish was still more satin than gloss.
When you point your finger 'cause your plan fell through you've got 3 more fingers pointing back at you.

I have just noted that SE05506 sold for £1,900.00p on the 1st August 2021 - good fair price for a good condition MK Strat with all Candy present too....
