    January 2020 GOTM

    Who wants to be crowned top guitar for the new year! All you need to do is enter your finished guitar or bass here to be judged for the Pit Bull Guitars January 2020 Guitar of the Month.

    Please remember:

    For Guitars or Basses finished on (or before) the end of December.

    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 closes at the end of December (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!

    Here is my completed SH-1 (first ever guitar build)

    The body has been cropped at the top and then carbon fibre skinned.

    Silver tape has been jused to cover the carbon cloth joints.

    The neck and fretboard have been eboney black stained with the neck being finished in danish oil.

    The bridge has been lowered by 3mm into the body compared to the standard kit and the neck has a 0.5 deg shim to give a really low action after the frets where levelled and re-shaped.

    Yep. Comp over. Just give the man the gong now.
    Absolute stunner, taking an already out there kit and pushing it that teensy little mile further out.
    Fine work mate, very fine work!
