      I will bet there are plenty of stories to go along with those signatures. Looks like you spent a bit of time in Nashville. Thanks Larry for posting here.

      Bernadette Peters?
    4. Vestaswind Vestaswind, 8 years ago
      Wow Chet, Buck, Carl, and BB! Some serious history there. That is a great item that has to be priceless to you
    5. mark dorr, 8 years ago
      Wow !!!!!! Love it. How did you get so many signatures?
    6. VintageTAKER54 VintageTAKER54, 8 years ago
      that has have to be worth around $9,999,999
    7. lbyrom lbyrom, 8 years ago
      Worked in LA, Chicago, and then 25 years in Nashville. All these signatures were acquired at the time of the session. It's a good history of my life.
    8. YardSaleDave, 8 years ago
      Me thinks you are being modest Larry. If you are who I think you are, you are one of the finest guitarist/slide guitarist in Nashville.
    9. lbyrom lbyrom, 8 years ago
      YardSaleDave, you busted me! Thanks for the compliment. Left Nashville years ago for a warmer climate to retire :)
    10. VikingFan82 VikingFan82, 8 years ago
      Good eye Dave! I LOVE Steppenwolf!
    11. macpicker macpicker, 8 years ago

    12. vermonter, 8 years ago
      Wow! Unbelievable guitar and story. Just WOW.
    13. Dizzydave Dizzydave, 8 years ago
      I wouldn't sell that for any price! That is so cool. That has to be a future Museum piece. Dave
    14. BullsEyeRadio BullsEyeRadio, 8 years ago
      Wow ! That is sooooooooo cool ! Good for you ! Don't part with that ! It's probably worth thousands !
    15. Chapeldreamer Chapeldreamer, 8 years ago
      That is one hell of a piece! My favorite autograph on that would have to be Dolly Parton. I love that gal and wish like the devil I could meet her. Who knows, maybe I will some day.
    16. lbyrom lbyrom, 8 years ago
      In regard to ever parting with this, I don't know what in the world the value would be on something like this. I guess it would depend on what someone is willing to pay. Not trying to sell it, but would like to know what it's worth.
    17. VikingFan82 VikingFan82, 8 years ago
      Thousands and thousands! The more popular singers command the most. I have seen a Dolly Parton signed guitar go for $400. And arguably she is not even the most famous. Values for the deceased artists' signatures could be even more. Carl Perkins and Tammy Wynette probably being the most valuable out of the deceased. Let's say the average value between the least valuable and the most valuable signatures is $150, and that may be lowballing it by quite a bit. Multiply that by the number of signatures...I think I counted 86, and you are looking at almost $13,000, or more. What I haven't taken into consideration is that it is guitar used in recording sessions by a well known accompanying musician (you) for almost 30 years, that has to add a few thousand dollars. Again, that might be lowballing it, but like you said, it's what people will pay and finding the right person. You could have one of the most valuable items on this entire website.
    18. YardSaleDave, 8 years ago
      If you ever do decide to sell it, find a middle man to consign it to, someone that specializes in high end guitars. Offers should go out to places like Dolly World, Hard Rock Cafe, and Casino's with music themes. It's an important piece of music history. All the best in your retirement.

      I've always been a rocker,but you've got classic signatures of the mega gods of country western.Carl Perkins who also influenced The Beatles with his Gretch Country Gentleman and Steve Cropper Motown session man B.B. King holy sh**!If this was my guitar, I would take it to one of the large auction houses for an appraisal,like Southeby's and go from there. Remember only you can give prominece to the signatures because you were there. It would probably be to your benefit to also have some type of expert authentication for the future.

    23. grobbins09, 7 years ago
      I wouldnt get rid of it either. id have it appraised, then store it in a glass case for people to see, and just pass it down in the family. really cool history and story.
    24. Gatorblue Gatorblue, 7 years ago
      Wow! This is truly amazing. Larry, I thought my old '37 EH-150 Gibson amp had a lot of signatures, but this beats it all.

      O.K. you asked !>A 1993 inductee into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, Don Schlitz was one of Nashville's preeminent songwriters and the author of numerous chart-topping hits. He was a native of Durham, North Carolina, and after a short stint at Duke University in the early '70s, he moved to Nashville to seek his fortune, working as a swing-shift computer operator for five years while honing his songwriting skills. Schlitz got his big break in 1978 when Kenny Rogers had a monster hit with his "The Gambler." The number one smash not only became one of Rogers' signature songs, but also spawned a series of TV-movies; later, Schlitz recorded and released his own version of the hit on his debut album, Dreamers Matinee. During the '80s, many other prominent artists recorded his songs, including John Conlee, Alabama, Randy Travis, Tanya Tucker, and Keith Whitley. Schlitz frequently co-wrote songs with Paul Overstreet; one of their most distinguished collaborations was "Forever and Ever Amen," which became an enormous hit for Randy Travis. In 1987, Schlitz wrote or co-wrote five number one singles, including "On the Other Hand," another hit for Travis.

      I was with a friend in Nashville eating at Tex Ritter's Superburger resturant when Tex came in. We got him to go out in the parking lot and autograph my friend's hippie VW microbus.

      The article states" Schlitz got his big break in 1978 when Kenny Rogers had a monster hit with his "The Gambler." The number one smash not only became one of Rogers' signature songs, but also spawned a series of TV-movies; later, Schlitz recorded and released his own version of the hit on his debut album, Dreamers Matinee.
      That's my story and I'm sticking to it !
