The signatures were acquired by a member of legendary Newcastle metal band Venom for a relative who was a fan and had this guitar, although Dime's signature may have been on the guitar from the earlier contest give-aways. Newcastle guitarist Dagan Wilkin acquired the guitar directly from that relative as can be seen in the signed letter and provenance that accompanies the guitar. He further had the signatures certified and authenticated by Prestige Pawn Brokers of TV's "Posh Pawn" - the UK's version of America's Pawn Stars. Their signed Certificate of Authentication joins the provenance that comes with this guitar. Dagan is endorsed by Kramer guitars and presents on the well known YouTube channel PMT House of Rock with over 140 Million views! Venom were a very influential band on Pantera, with lead singer Phil Anselmo having the band prominently tattooed across his back.
