Was wondering if anyone would know what the first steps would be to getting these signatures verified?

Better Music in Australia is selling this guitar claiming it is signed by Steve Vai without any COA.


Any help would be great.

It looks good
Like his current signature-

But JEMs are a little weird

The guitars they're on are worth more than the signature

So more likely than not- they're almost always authentic-

No one would forge it on a real one because unless they claimed it was owned by him- it wouldn't really increase the value- in fact- depending on where the signature is- it can hurt the value

I've seen JS1000's LOOSE value over an autograph more times than gain value

A baseball is $20, a baseball players signature on it can be $20-5000

A living guitar player- a guy like David Gilmour or Jimmy Page NEVER SIGN so their signatures are really rare- and worth tons of money

A Stevie Ray Vaughn signature on a $100 guitar is different than on a $2000+ guitar
(Same goes with BB King- a real Gibson Lucille will go up in value- an epiphone jr special- nothing)

But in this case- Although no autograph means more to me than his- the guitar is worth more than the signature so authenticity isn't really the issue- authenticity of the guitar is

And the Red/Black floral jems have a lot of fakes out there and the bodies look perfect- so they're out there
