Please welcome Andy McGill, the winner of "Cannibal Corpse: Bass Guitar Giveaway," which was held a couple weeks ago.

This is an unusual article. Moreover, we feel it's a shame we hadn't done those articles in a long, long time.

As you may know, UG holds a lot of contests (which can be seen at the bottom of the main page where no one actually goes ;). There are people who participate in 'em and then there are people who win. So, let us honor the participants and celebrate the winners!

Please welcome Andy McGill, the winner of "Cannibal Corpse: Bass Guitar Giveaway", which was held a couple weeks ago.

Andy's become a lucky owner of the gloss black Alex Webster Spector bass with "Blood Splatter" paint job. Needless to say, he was pleased with the prize and says it "plays and sounds incredible" with an "amazing clarity and punch that is got to be the best sound on low B ever to date !!!!!!......."

A long-time luthier, Andy built his first guitar back in mid-eighties and has made some 500 more ever since. He says, "I never buy expensive high end guitars only because I understand what it takes to make a guitar or bass for the original cost and labor involved. My thought process is that why pay for some thing that I can do myself for 1/4-1/3 of the price. Most of these companies that are big names are just tacking an easy $400-$800 for the name if not more because if you take away extra costs of exotic woods and what ever add ons you put into a guitar every guitar takes the same amount of time to build especially when they are using computer controlled router systems that do many bodies at once many times a day and buy all hardware in huge bulk discount compared to a single luthier like myself."

From our side, we'd like to thank Andy for being out there and sticking by UG. His total dedication to guitars and music deserves a lot of respect; we sincerely wish him good luck, peace and inspiration.

Rock on!

    You'd imagine an experienced luthier has probably held a guitar once or twice in his time.

    Cheers bro, make good use of it. Having Webster's bass is like... having sex with Katy Perry or something.

    Might be a big Blues Brothers fan, Jake, Elwood also had names tattood on their fingers. Anyway, I like the guys attitude towards 'the big companies', however, it costs a lot to run a company and endorse stars, that's why they cost 80% more than the materials do.

    I entered a UG contest once... it was for the Eric Peterson's Dean "Old Skull" Flying V. I was easliy the best vocalist in the contest (not to toot my own horn, but the contestants were terrible) and I never won my guitar... nor did anyone else. I've just assumed they were all scams since then.
