    Gees it was hard picking three. Every thread was inspirational. Congratulations to every participant you are all winners in my book. Thanks also to TDPRI for putting on such a great competition. Easily the best show on the internet as far as I'm concerned.

    Well done all!!

    When I was growing up there was a quiet little man next door who made things out of wood. One day he made a guitar, and played it. Then he built a lute and played that. In a neighbourhood where most of the men just drank, he opened my eyes to a world where people could be different, even extraordinary. I have watched these builds with a sense of the same wonder and awe I had back then. It's good to see a few kids featuring in build threads and videos. Besides the beautiful guitars that have been made, I think there will be a few wide-eyed boys and girls who will grow up to build instruments or do something they didn't think possible. Thanks to Paul and all the builders for the wonder and inspiration.

    I am truly knocked out by all of the builds. I think they should all win.
    Just some absolutely stunning entries. I am going to go through the thread a
    couple more times before I vote.

    Paul, you are the man. Thanks for your putting this on. This site truly ROX.

    My grandpa was one of those - one of my best childhood memories was visiting his shop and watching him make things (although not guitars).

    I never really followed in his footsteps but I felt like I was finally coming close while working on this guitar... the smells and flying sawdust reminded me of his shop, and it was probably only his scary words about how important shop safety is when I was 7 or 8 that stopped me from injuring myself in the process.

    (Now that I remember it, his shop was extremely tidy and organized. I've got some work to do!)

    Thanks Paul and everyone here for bringing me such a great experience!

    Great guitars, very hard to chose three.

    However I find the videos do them wrong, the playing and the recording are mostly of very low quality. No offence intended.

    I've been away so I've missed out on following these build threads, but WOWEEE there's some nice gear in there. Massive congratulations to everybody who completed a build this year, and even those who started and didn't quite get there. Keep it up guys!

    Good job it's a build challenge and not a concert recording challenge then eh? I'm sure we'll look forward to your build and video next year. ;)

    If we had to choose only 2 or as much as we wanted this would have been a no brainer!
    But Three?????
