Apologies for the delayed start but...

We are now announcing the October 2022 Guitar of the Month contest! October'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 added to this message, which is October's submission thread.

Submissions will be accepted from now until exactly 7 days from now (please check this post's date and time), 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. Links will not be included in the entry descriptions.

Please try to stick to the entry requirements:
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.

Owner or other non-professionally finished instruments only this month.

Hand painted on Alder, The Legend that Robert Johnson sells his souls to the devil in Crossroads. The devil gives his guitar a tuning, a magic touch that with magic power, some supernatural power behind his magic hands, to symbolize this, I imitate the gesture of god's magic touch at the fresco painting by Michelangelo, The Creation of Adam, which forms part of the Sistine Chapel's ceiling.

The crossroad extended on pickguard, Made a 3D model as his walk to crossroad image in the movie scene. Flatten it to make 3D painting, relief. And 3D print the walking to crossroads movie scene on pickguard.
