Same here... I've an 'ironic' budget end signature bass guitar - the signaturee (is that a word?) is a friend of a friend... ...and I've built a couple of guitars based on the spec tweeks of a couple of well known guitarists - a Squier based Johnny Marr replica, and a Fender Mexican '50 based 'replica' of Dave Gilmour's red EMG equipped guitar. Neither because I'm fans or want their sound, but because they are actually very useful mods. The Jag is in a colour that the Marr is unlikely to ever be offered in - CA Red - and the Strat has never actually been a signature model, and is surf green. If I hadn't already built my own, the Marr Jaguar is something I'd seriouly consider, since the mods cured all the annoyances of the Jag without ruining the character and Fender doesn't charge crazy money for it, it may even be cheaper than the Vintage Reissues? The nearest thing to the Gilmour guitar would be the Clapton Signature - different electronics but they do the same thingz, again, very reasonably priced.
