June 2014 Guitar of the Month Contest Submissions


Hero Member
Apologies for the late start - communication breakdown (it's always the same), but we are now announcing the June, 2014 Guitar of the Month contest!  June's contest will be "Owner/non-professionally Finished" and requires at least a Warmoth neck or body to qualify.

Please read the GOM rules, which have been refined, with some slight changes, and are posted in a sticky in this forum area.

Submissions must be sent, to uwfgom@gmail.com, and contain two images no greater than 1024x768, along with your description and details of the instrument.  Send your submission in plain text email.  Your photos must be attachments to the email.  Your unOfficialWarmoth Forum user name must be included in the body of the email.

In turn, your images will posted to this message, which is June's submission thread.

Submissions will be accepted from now until June 17th, so get your cameras clicking!

As usual, discussion about the submissions can take place below.

It seems to be the majority view that additional photos should not be posted in this thread - wherever/however they're hosted. The official rules have not been updated as of yet so nobody will be disqualified for posting pictures; they'll just be subjected to the shaking of heads and tutting.

Links to other UW threads or external sites are fine.

Good luck, and may the best guitar/bass win!
