Some SOTW members have requested and received autographs on their saxophones (see below). Who else here would be inclined to request this? What are your opinions on this practice? How does a famous signature affect an instrument's value? Are players endorse a particular brand reluctant to sign horns of other brands?
I saw Fathead in concert last year around Christmas. ... He signed my old sax.

... Marienthal ... signed my saxophone!
I was really lucky and got to play with Streetlight manifestoa ... The guys in SM ... signed my neck(on the sax, be weird otherwise haha) yeah It was a good show.
I [saw] Joe Lovano walking straight towards me. ...should I ask him to sign an autograph? sign my sax case or sax?
I did embarrass myself by asking [Phil Woods] to autograph a reed for me though. He rolled his eyes and summarily dismissed me...*laugh*
