    Man, you just can't argue with those results.

    Phil, Oi, Scatter - you guys did some absolutely incredible work this year. A big congratulations to you 3. The accolades are well deserved!


    **EDIT** Like a bonehead, I didn't even congratulate our Beginner Category winners :oops:. You guys were really inspiring doing what you did. Having never built a guitar before, you jumped into the deep end and turned out some beautiful and great-playing guitars. Indeed, congratulations and attaboys are in order!

    Incredibly impressive stuff this year. Kwerk made perhaps the most unique guitar I have ever seen.

    There were some incredible guitars this year and I have to admit I had a hard time voting. Congrats to the beginners, who all fashioned excellent first guitars or basses.

    Igork's fastest build still has me :eek: because that is one fine Tele.

    Well, I suppose a tie for 24th place isn't that bad considering it's my first complete build. :p

    Congrats to the winners. Here's to looking forward to even harder build "challenges" to come!

    :cool:

    I already posted my congratulations in each of the winner's build threads, so I'll use this thread to congratulate all the other contestants. That has got to be the finest bunch of instruments I have ever seen in one place. So many inovative ideas and so much precise craftmanship. I was honored to be a part of it, and I'm looking forward to doing it again next year. Thanks again to Paul and TDPRI.

    Remember - If you steal an idea from one person it's plagerism - if you steal ideas from a hundred people it's research :D
