    Rocktober!!! Gotm

    We're back to Roctober again and what better month to have the GOTM!

    Rocktober Guitar of the Month (for Guitars and Basses finished in Rocktember 2018)

    Enter your finished guitar or bass here to be judged for the Pit Bull Guitars Rocktember 2018 Guitar of the Month.

    Please remember:

    For Guitars or Basses finished on (or before) the end of Rocktember 2018

    One guitar/bass per member per month
    It must be a Pit Bull Guitars kit (mods and upgrades acceptable)
    Guitar or Bass must be finished and playable

    We need at least 4 photos:
    · full guitar shot from the front;
    · close up of the body finish;
    · shot of the back of the guitar; and
    · close up of the headstock (please, no brand name logos)


    Please post your photos in this thread. If you are having issues posting photos on the forum, please email them to brendan (at) pitbullguitars (dot) com

    Please note: This competition is open to amateur guitar builders only. If you are making and selling guitars for profit, you are ineligible. Also while there are some stunning guitars around - you never know what the judges are looking for, so we encourage anyone who's built a Pitbull during the month to enter!

    Competition for Rocktober closes at the end of Rocktember 2018 (Perth Western Australian time).

    The sorts of things we judge on include:
    · How well have the body and neck been prepared
    · Is the choice of finish for the style of guitar appropriate
    · How well has the finish been applied
    · How well has all the hardware, pickups, etc, been installed
    · Does it have the "Wow Factor"
    · Which guitar would you make a beeline for in a guitar shop. That is, which one would you most like to take home.


    BTW - remember that the winner is invited to be a guest judge the following month!

    Hi, looks like I’m kicking this month off with my first build. ES-5V hand stained burst with Tru Oil finish. Stock apart from strap holders, Tusq nut, rosewood knobs, truss rod cover, modified bridge, chromes strings and standard size audio and linear pots. Made a scratch plate but couldn’t bring myself to put it on. Apologies for the number of posts but I only seem to be able to save one photo at a time on my free photo Resizer app. Looking forward to the critical appraisal.

    And the headstock, I need to photograph against a dark background to avoid under exposure.

    Thanks FrankenWashie, I enjoyed your enthusiasm during its construction. I must admit the photos probably are not clear enough to really highlight faults.
