    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!

    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 entry for Oct. 2019 G.O.T.M.. TBJ-5F Thunderbird Bass Kit Build. Shou Sugi Banned burned, then endless hours of painstaking engraving the wood grain lines. Feast and Watson Teak stain on the center of the body and brown pen ink stain on the wings. Then Scandinavian oiled and finished off with ultra gloss poly. EMG active pup in the neck and kit pup in the bridge and upgrading the bridge. I didnt have the heart to cover the grain with the scratchplate/pickguard.
