    Can't say I agree with Waz on the colour but that looks like a great piece of work.

    Hmmm, on my phone it looked more vibrant whereas now on the desktop computer I am almost thinking Granny Smith. The glitter sparkles sucked me in together with the pearloid plate.

    August GOTM

    August Guitar of the Month (for Guitars and Basses finished in July 2018)

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

    Please remember:

    For Guitars or Basses finished on (or before) the end of July 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 June closes at the end of July 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!

    Finished mine today was a great project and learnt ALOT from building my first guitar. Had a good mate of mine who owns Black Hart Airbrushing in Perth do the amazing art work and then a crazy green flake on the back. Wish my pictures could pick it up more but its crazy how much it pops in the sun. He also learnt a lot with the art work/paint bubbling over and reacting to the stain I originally tried on it. Had to start over 3 times on the paint work!! In the end.. We are botth stoked with how it came out! Definitely be doing another one together at some point.
