Hero Member
We are now announcing the November, 2022 Guitar of the Month contest! November's contest will be "Warmoth/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, 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 added to this message, which is November's submission thread.

Submissions will be accepted until exactly 7 days from the date and time of this post, so get your cameras clicking!

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

Please do not post additional photos in any replies to this thread. Links to other UW threads or external sites are fine.

Please try to stick to the entry requirements:
Two 1024x768 pixel images maximum as attachments please, not embedded in the email or linked to external sites.

An image for the purposes of this contest is a single photograph, not a multiple image/collage.

Warmoth or other professionally finished instruments only this month.

Sorry, but entries that do not meet these requirements may not be included in the contest. If you're having technical difficulties, get in touch! (But only about contest entries please!)

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