ProjectGuitar.com's Guitar Of The Month contest is a showcase for all members to exhibit their creations and to vote on whose is this month's favourite.

This contest is open entry for any and all members. The winner(s) receive featured article placement on the ProjectGuitar.com homepage, default site background wallpaper and privileged member perks across the site (plus a shiny badge!). The main Project Guitar site sees thousands of unique visitors from around the Internet so show off your work for the world to see!

Submissions are open throughout the month until about the last week when public voting open. Polls automatically close at the tick of midnight on the 1st of each month.

Contest Guidelines

  • Post a maximum of four of your best photos for each guitar entered.
  • Ensure that your guitar has a name otherwise one will be given to it. :)
  • List additional descriptive information specific to the build (for example woods, scale length, electronics, whether it is your first build, etc.) and optionally a summary of the build's history. Was it built for yourself? What were your inspirations? Why you chose various build aspects, any background on what makes it special, etc. Tell us more about the instrument!
  • Posting a link to your guitar-building website, Photobucket, Facebook, etc. is fine, even if it is your business. In the spirit of fairness we encourage instruments made by individuals rather than seasoned manufacturers.
  • Post a link to the project build thread if one exists. Generally builds that have been shared with the community get more votes!

Unsure what to write? Have a look around the entry archives for suggestions.

If you are unable to link/post photographs or have any other questions about the GOTM contest, either PM me or ask forum members; we're a helpful bunch! In general it is recommended to upload your photos into Project Guitar's Gallery and inserting them using the "My Media" button in the post editor.

This thread is exclusively for entry posts only - any post that is not an entry will be deleted. Traditionally the month's entries are discussed once polls open or within each instrument's build thread if one has been made.

There hasn't been many submissions lately, so I thought I'd throw one up to raise the numbers and hopefully a few others will too.

Come on new guys, don't be shy. More than once this has been won by guys posting their first ever build. Even if you don't think it'll win, post it to get some feedback to use towards your next build.

Specs - Mahogany with Wenge fingerboard and Ebony binding, then some parts chucked at it. Customer ordered specs.

Basically an experiment with a bolt on model. I wanted a nice tele sensibility with modern edge. I used construction grade pine for the body and a regular hard maple neck.
