Hi

Never saw a Jarré model synth or Rick Wakeman.
Or could we consider Emerson Moog one . but not in production as far as I know.

Guitars, basses and amp are crowded with signature models all over.

Keyboard guys are smarter and does not fall for that crap?

Or did I miss it?

There are. The guys just manufacture them themselves.

most of them use standard synths, ie if you buy the synth they use, you get the same synth.

guitars are often modded versions of off the shelf guitars, changing pick ups or tunerd or something, so there is more scope for signature models.
