Whoomit: Oh I see. I'm still not sure about that, I would rather get a corporate sponsor. We've got nine months until we need it though so there's heaps of time yet.

JCG: That's not what I meant, I'm still working on prizes - you might like to check the context of the conversation. I won't charge an entry fee, as it might turn people away.

**** the prizes. Do it for the hell of it. The prize is the guitar you made.

I'm up for the Unlimited Challenge.

Edit: Also, I was under the impression that the £100 build challenges were mainly to inject live into GB&C. Anything that keeps this subforum ticking over and up-to-date is worthwhile.

Put me down for 100euro (theres no euro sign on my keyboard. )

But I'm assuming thats like 150 USD amirite?


edit* I'm going to make this super awesome. Since I've got almost a year to do this. I

There is this old walnut tree (at least I think its a walnut tree.. I find walnuts under it..... and ....

IM GOING TO CUT IT DOWN....

MILL IT INTO BOARDS....

AND RETROFIT A SHED I HAVE INTO A SOLAR KILN TO DRY IT!

Free wood b*tchesss.

From the research I've done, if I set up the kiln correctly it will only take a couple months max to dry the wood to 8% MC, which should be fine.

I havent decided on anything else yet tho. Hopefully I can get a piece big enough for a 1 piece!

100€?

This is a £100 build (ie. 100 Great British Pounds, or Pounds Sterling). £ =/= €

We don't use the Euro in the United Kingdom, because we're crafty.

Oh balls. I guess thats like 64 USD. This just got substantially harder! I like it. Good thing I'm not paying for wood.

Yeah I see no need for prizes, unless its donated by a company, but I cant see Dimarzio giving a pickup or anything like that.

The pit uses forum prizes like having your ban/warn history wiped, but that probably doesnt apply to most people in GB&C lol

I'm willing to give the unlimited build a shot. I can't guarantee that I'll get something finished, but I'm going to do my best.

I might try to contact some companies and see if we can get some sort of prize for first place for the two different challenges. If I remember correctly we've been doing this about three years now. If we can keep people involved, and keep this yearly we might be able to start getting some various manufacturers or other places involved with prizes.

I lol'd at simple conversions.
I just found a walnut neck blank I have, reverse headstock. I smell RG or Dinky build....I really want to do a multi-wood neck through build, natural finish. So many idea's for this thing

For prizes, if we don't get anything from a company, what about donations or something from forum members? Im aware that it'll probably fall through though...

That is another option as well. For now I'm going to wait to hear back from the mods about an idea of mine and then I'll contact some companies. If it falls through I might donate some stuff for prizes.

I did google it. =/ The google result I found lied to. It had the conversion listed backwards. And no I didn't read it wrong I went back and checked.

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.

About the prizes:

we could find a guitar manufacturer to sponsor or something. like put there name on the guitar or something and they supply prizes. i no, dumb idea but u never know. . .



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.
