I think that any guitarist would be interested in the Next Gretsch Greats Unsigned Artist Competition. As part of the 125th anniversary, Gretsch is sponsoring an international search for the best unsigned and independent bands and the entry period begins on May 1st.

Bands from the U.S., U.K., Canada, Japan, Germany, France and Spain will upload an mp3 file of their best song and compete for one grand prize – a spot at a New York City concert event headlined by legendary Great Gretsch Artists AND $15,000 worth of Gretsch drums and guitars. The first prize winner will receive $5,000 worth of Gretsch drums and guitars and the second prize winner will receive $1,250 worth of Gretsch gift certificates.

For more information, visit the Gretsch 125th anniversary website. The entry period opens on May 1st.

Cheers!
