  1. Welcome to the Guitar Of The Month entry for June 2018!

    ProjectGuitar.com's Guitar Of The Month contest is a showcase for members to exhibit their creations and to vote on their favourites. The contest is open entry for any and all members, new or old. Winner(s) receive a featured article at the head of the ProjectGuitar.com homepage and elevated member status. ProjectGuitar.com receives tens of thousands of unique visitors monthly; Guitar Of The Month is a great way to showcase your creations to the world!

    Submissions are open throughout the month with public voting open in the last week. Polls close on the first weekend of each month.

    Lastly, if you didn't win a previous month's Guitar Of The Month contest, you are encouraged to enter your build again the next month for a maximum of three consecutive months. Sometimes one entry just hits it out of the park and eclipses everything!

    Tips and Guidelines

    • Upload a maximum of eight photos for the instrument in your post
    • Ensure that your guitar has a name otherwise we'll make one up 😉
    • List additional descriptive information specific to the build; for example....
      • The woods and materials used, especially if there is something unusual in there!
      • Scale length(s) and other specific configuration details
      • Electronics, pickups, etc.
      • Is this your first build, fifth or five-hundredth?
      • A bit of information on your own background as a builder helps give context to your build.
      • Was it built in the garage, at school, work or in your own shop?
      • A summary of the build's history. Was it built for yourself, friend/family or a client? Did you design the instrument and its specifications or was it built to spec?
      • What were the inspirations behind the instrument and why were various build aspects chosen?
      • Any background on what makes it special?
    • Posting a link to your guitar-building website, Photobucket, Facebook, etc. is fine, even if it is your business. In the spirit of fairness towards less experienced builders, we encourage professional builders to consider whether their entries constitute being "fair".
      • Commercial "standard" models are not a valid entry, guys....Guitar Of The Month is about unique and characterful builds, not rubber-stamped production units!
    • We reserve the right to pull entries that are thinly-guised adverts; ProjectGuitar.com is about community, sharing build processes and the exchange of ideas - not a vehicle for adverts by members that don't engage with the community.
    • If you documented your build in the forums, post a link to the thread; instruments with a build thread shared tend to attract more votes from the general community. In our experience this is the biggest attractor of votes.
    • ProTip: Voters vote with their ears as well as their eyes....if you have any soundclips of the instrument or even a YouTube video, do post it! Everybody loves to look at beautiful instruments, but hearing them demo'ed is 10x as important.

      • What were the inspirations behind the instrument and why were various build aspects chosen?
      • Any background on what makes it special?
    • Posting a link to your guitar-building website, Photobucket, Facebook, etc. is fine, even if it is your business. In the spirit of fairness towards less experienced builders, we encourage professional builders to consider whether their entries constitute being "fair".
      • Commercial "standard" models are not a valid entry, guys....Guitar Of The Month is about unique and characterful builds, not rubber-stamped production units!
    • We reserve the right to pull entries that are thinly-guised adverts; ProjectGuitar.com is about community, sharing build processes and the exchange of ideas - not a vehicle for adverts by members that don't engage with the community.
    • If you documented your build in the forums, post a link to the thread; instruments with a build thread shared tend to attract more votes from the general community. In our experience this is the biggest attractor of votes.
    • ProTip: Voters vote with their ears as well as their eyes....if you have any soundclips of the instrument or even a YouTube video, do post it! Everybody loves to look at beautiful instruments, but hearing them demo'ed is 10x as important.

  16. Welcome to the Guitar Of The Month contest for September 2017!

    ProjectGuitar.com's Guitar Of The Month contest is a showcase for members to exhibit their creations and to vote on their favourites. The contest is open entry for any and all members, new or old. Winner(s) receive a featured article at the head of the ProjectGuitar.com homepage and elevated member status. ProjectGuitar.com receives tens of thousands of unique visitors monthly; Guitar Of The Month is a great way to showcase your creations to the world!

    Submissions are open throughout the month with public voting open in the last week. Polls close on the 1st of each month.

    Lastly, if you didn't win a previous month's Guitar Of The Month contest, you are encouraged to enter your build again the next month for a maximum of three consecutive months. Sometimes one entry just hits it out of the park and eclipses everything!

    Tips and Guidelines

    • Upload a maximum of eight photos for the instrument in your post
    • Ensure that your guitar has a name otherwise we'll make one up ;-)
    • List additional descriptive information specific to the build; for example....
      • The woods and materials used, especially if there is something unusual in there!
      • Scale length(s) and other specific configuration details
      • Electronics, pickups, etc.
      • Is this your first build, fifth or five-hundredth?
      • A bit of information on your own background as a builder helps give context to your build.
      • Was it built in the garage, at school, work or in your own shop?
      • A summary of the build's history. Was it built for yourself, friend/family or a client? Did you design the instrument and its specifications or was it built to spec?
      • What were the inspirations behind the instrument and why were various build aspects chosen?
      • Any background on what makes it special?
    • Posting a link to your guitar-building website, Photobucket, Facebook, etc. is fine, even if it is your business. In the spirit of fairness towards less experienced builders, we encourage professional builders to consider whether their entries constitute being "fair".
