When: Deadline to enter is midnight on March 31, 2021.
Why: The purpose is to help an up-and-coming female artist have a custom instrument more suited to their style than anything off the shelf can be. The guitar will have custom electronics, bridge, tuners, finish, and have a professional setup based on the winner, basically a professional quality instrument tailored for the winner.
Growing up in a very small town and not having much money, my progression was limited to an extent by the amount of money I had to spend on an instrument. I struggled at times because the only guitar I could afford wasn’t very well made and hard to play. I’m trying to take that scenario away for someone.
What I’m not doing is giving away a $200 guitar and saying “here you go.” It’s the same process that I’ve done with creating signature series guitars for world-renowned guitarists.
