April-May Contest

Recommended Posts

Yes I know I'm late so this one will be for both April and May!

So let's get started and everyone hit your bookmark folder and search engines again. What your looking for this time? Build sites and tutorial sites of course!

The old basic rule's apply:

1. The site must not be listed currently on Project Guitar.com

2. Post only the home page website address of your entry

3. First to post a site claims it for the point count.

4. You must post which catagory the link will fit in to.

Now on to the prize, just about the most common problem people come up with when working on a guitar doing a custom job for the first time is they don't take the time to practice and experiment on something else first!

Even I use an old beater neck to practice on as pictured here!

The winner will get a new neck to practice on so you don't have to trash your own! It is factory finished with some of the toughest stuff I have ever run across so you can even practice removing finishes! :D

Contest deadline is May 31st but remember rule 3 B)
