If anything, I'd guess we'd be most likely to get a parts company like allparts/stewmac/guitarfetish to supply a gift card code or something like that. But honestly, I don't mind not having prizes as I'm happy with both the builds I've already done, and am expecting similar success this time around. That's prize enough for me.

i guess ur right. but as i said, at least a certificate saying you won. btw when we build our guitars, do we have to do a whole thread, or just when were done post pics. cuz if we don't you dont have proof you made it.

There is one so far (plus yours). I'm linking the builds in the second post of this thread as they come, so check the first page for the full directory.

I would never, ever put anyone else's name on my guitar but mine.

Also, I don't see the bother with prizes, great if we can have them, but isn't it enough to KNOW you won? When in your entire life are you ever going to see a GB&C user in real life and have them question the validity of your claim to winning the 2012 100gbp build contest and happily be ready to produce your certificate which you conveniently keep folded neatly in your wallet??

No-one is going to mistake if you're voted the winner - if you really want to, simply keep a link to your victory in your sig. If you built the best out of 10-20 custom, hand built guitars, isn't getting to keep it enough prize unto itself?

Part of the idea behind prizes, in my opinion at least, is to try to make it so that more and more users will participate in these contest. This would then bring in the companies who I am willing to contact even more money during contest time.

As far as putting the company name on the guitar, I'm against that... but if we can have some sort of call out in the contest rules about who is donating the prizes then we may be able to get something.

I'm looking at getting multiple prizes and giving some of the nicer things away to the 100 GBP contest due to the fact that the entire idea is to build the guitar with little money. This somewhat limits the quality of your guitar by what you can buy and your own ingenuity so it would be nice for the winner to get a few items that may help make their guitar even better.

Obviously prizes are not going to keep the contest from happening, but they are nice to have.

i was talking to my friend about this and he was like "what do u win?"

i said that we havn't decided and it might just be your own guitar.

I just thought of something that whoever wins, chooses somebody's guitar to keep. except. . . NO ONE TAKES MINE!! so i doubt thisll work.

No prizes. You keep coming for prizes.

The prize is Prestige Only. Sometimes you just do things for respect. Not for a physical return.

In this case you gain the respect of all the lurkers of GB&C if you win.
