If everyone else is reluctant to contribute, my odds might be good;)

Hold up there, pardner...

I've seen through other sites that do this sort of thing, that the winner is usually someone new or with only a couple of posts in the last 5 years or so. So, as I sees it, I've got a darn good chance at this one! :D

Actually, I'd love to win this lovely guitar to experience, yet again, the wrath that is my Wife... Well that, AND it's a b*****n' guitar!

Seriously, these type of paid membership drives are just fine in my book; supports good sites with hard working mods and a lot of cool cats who dig guitars.

I'll sign up soon.

I am retired and waiting for back surgery. Two bulging discs along with disc degenerative disease and the L5 vertebra has slipped from the S1. Consequently i have lots of time on my hands so i visit this site numerous times daily. Glad to lend a hand with a donation.

To enter simply click here and purchase a Silver, Gold, Platinum or Double Platinum account upgrade on the website by December 16, 2022.
Some other forums provide a mechanism to gift a membership upgrade for another user. When you find someone has been consistently and particularly helpful in their responses, or whatever, this is also a nice option to give another user that recognition. Is that possible here?

And maybe include a sticker with the forum logo on it too that you can put on your guitar case?

(PS-note to mods, I dog-eared my entry, so you know which one to pick for the winner! Did I just say that out loud?)

I couldn’t begin to count the amount of times i have come here for advice. Not just advice, but worthwhile, and for the most part trust worthy. To say i have learned a lot here is an understatement. I have paid consideraby more for things in my life and have gotten nothing. I dont consider this a payment, its a due, that i am glad to finally be able to offer.

That being said, the amount of gas this forum has generated has cost me more than i can bare to calculate. The contest seems fun, and I never had a guitar with rolled fret boards. That seems like a brilliant option. Normally i like binding as it smooths out the sides of the neck and i dont feel frets, but does every thing need binding? Considering using the belt sander on some of my guitars to get that effect, and this is the forum that i would post that in to see what grade paper and horse power i would need. So thanks all!

The new condo, and the Lemmy Kilmister Signature basses have left the guitar budget a little short.

This prize would be a very welcome addition.

"Having a raffle is a very common way of raising funds."
True - but tiering entries by dollar amount contributed just feels so wrong.
Perusing these pages, I can guesstemate who has and who doesn't have endless disposable cash.
Myself I have jamplay & truefire annuals along with Brian's Active Melody. Add to that another buck and a half a year for quite worthy patreon contributors.
So, to most perhaps $15 bucks is chump change but I'm still gonna do it. Just for the wealth of information I have garnered here for answers to questions I did not need to ask.
For anyone wondering, who is this clown? I posted a brutally honest intro thread that was too much for management to allow - I will follow up with pics of my toys which shall say all you need to know
Best of luck to all
