    The 2008 Fundraiser/Giveaway is now in progress and we're giving away much more in the way of prizes this year. NOW you will have a chance of winning one of the following:

    4 Guitars
    2 Amps
    2 Body/neck DIY Builds
    5 Bridge Saddle Sets and More
    3 Effects Pedals

    All totaled this years prizes come to $11,000 at retail which is nearly double the previous prize total in any one year.

    On a serious note... I know times are tough and everything is more expensive. But so is running this website. We've just signed a contract for a MUCH larger server (which we move to this Sunday, November 2nd!) and all of our software license fees have increased over the past year as well.

    So, your help is needed more than ever to keep the TDPRI going and growing. We'd like to add even more new features as well as improve the performance of the existing site as well. So, if you are able, we would appreciate your support.

    Full contest rules and information is contained on the link below:

    Thank you so much for your support. It is greatly appreciated.
    Paul Green
    TDPRI Webmaster
    PS. Chances of winning are determined by the number of entries but in years past it has worked out to be approximately one in 30 -- much better odds than in just about any other such drawing you enter elsewhere.

    Hey, Mr. All-I-Need-Is-My-Esquire, hands off my guitar. Some of us never get enough.

    I stopped off on the way home to buy some picks and got a close look at the Squier Classic Vibe Tele. Those are beautiful guitars, I couldn't believe it was a Squier at first. They all look amazing.

    First time in a while that I ever spent money on something and didn't regret it immediately.

    I don't care if I win or not, but I sure hope I do!

    count me in! every one of those prizes would be amazing, but man that Kirn tele is beautiful, not to mention how great the Hahn sounds in that clip. great job on securing a top notch set of prizes, i can't imagine this not being another very successful giveaway. i was too broke last year, so glad i can donate this time around!
