We could try to seperate the guitar builds into catagories, which would allow for several groups of threads vs one huge generic group. From reading the posts I believe I see a trend toward grouping the builders rather than the guitar. For ex: Novice, Amateur, Pro-AM and Pro.

Also, the idea of a primary voting to sort out some of the best and then a regular voting to determine a winner is pretty good I think.

The threads do become tedious to read with comments, Possibly we could have a ~Comments Thread~ ex: ~PapaLions 2013 Build Comments~ and reserve the Primary thread ~PapaLions 2013 Build~ for post entries only from the builder.

Limiting design, raw materials, or technique is counterproductive. Build from any material using any technique allows for the most diversity of ideas. Free format. The thought of deliberately making the rules more difficult, for ex: wind your own pups. with a point to reduce the number of builds is artificial. A better way to go is to reward with votes those builders who choose to embrace a more difficult build. And, there are several ways for the builder to do that in an impressive way without arbitrary rules.

This would include the method the builder uses to describe his build and present his final product. The video is used now to assure the voter that the guitar is operable, not to show the builders ability to play. But, if a fella plays well, and can be creative with the video all the better. For ex: I watch well produced YouTubes, others I pass.

Finally the spirit of the build along with discovering another fellas talents lends a lot of credence to this Challenge. Cut it up too much and we'll loose the spontaneity.
