Thanks!

btw Good Luck to all!


Kind of answered your own question there. You can enter as many times as you like (I'll edit the rules now), but I have to say that if you're making two guitars exactly the same then you may only want to enter one. As for judging, there will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd for each category, however there may not be a prize for all of them.

Yeah I think that as soon as we start charging entry, we'll start putting people off - I'd rather no prizes and more entries personally.

Put me down for the 100GBP/155USD. I've got a great idea for a tele that I've been wanting to put together for cheap

thank you for doing this...I haven't built anything for well over a year (just lacking the motivation and time...and skills ) so this has come at a perfect time really. Just cut down a cypress (well 5 months ago anyway) that I was planning on making either a tele or a musicman shape guitar so by the time it drys it should fit perfectly with the comp

That's about $150 US dollars, right? I might join in. I'll update with a decision either way soon. My last build started off intended for this challenge a few years ago, and I still came out ahead despite quitting the challenge and finishing about a year late since I ended up with a great guitar.

as of right now, 100GBP=

154.14 USD
157.93 CAD
121.21 EUR
150.66 AUD


For now I'll have to be counted out as all my money's going to school.. in the summer I may be able to enter something for the 100GBP portion of the competition though. I'll keep it in mind.. I'd really like to build something, it's just not possible with my money situation right now though

Similar here, though I'm looking through my parts bins and wood piles to see if I have enough to build a guitar with what I already have. (Of course I'll figure the costs from when I bought them into my budget) It looks like I'll be close anyway.


I'm in for the 100GBP one

I wasn't thinking of charging for entry. I was more just meaning that if prizes are involved, somebody's got to pay. So if people wanted they could donate a bit of money towards it

I might see if I can find somebody in need of a guitar to give my build to though, seems like a nice idea

Edit: I didn't necessarily mean someone on UG
