    A Campy?? I'd probably donate $6k in the attempt to win it. Then lose it in the divorce.

    Carboard box sniffing! It's highly addictive, and very contagious! :)

    How much??!!

    Paul, you are a star!

    I remember last year's draw and I was following it on Twitter whilst waiting for a train at St. Pancras station in London!

    Sadly my name didn't come up this time - did in 2003! - but I was delighted to see my friend Rick J win one of the major prizes. Rick and I had been to see Bill Kirchen play in London the night before and I rang to tell him he'd won. I'm not sure who was more delighted. Him or me! :p

    It's great fun and helps the TDPRI continue to be this fine place.

    Now a $6000 Custom Shop?

    :eek: Peter

    I'm sure I could find the answer to this if I looked hard enough, and I realize that someone already asked, but the answer wasn't very specific. How do we enter? Do you have to "donate" to the site? I've been involved in a few of these over at Jemsite.com and we had to endure a workaround to make it legitimate.

    What is the deal at TDPRI?

    No work arounds here. Provided you're over 18, live on planet earth and you are a member of the TDPRI, you can enter.

    A donation (think it was $20 last year [admin edit -- it's been $25 for the past 6 years]) gets your name in the hat or you can supply your details by post. I expect it to be similar this year but Paul will let us know.

    Great fun and helps fund the TDPRI.

    :) Peter

    Let's see now ........... the Merle Haggard "Tuff Dog" has a list price in the $6000 range.

    Holy crap ......... just checked ......... it now has an MSRP over $7000.

    Looks like that box has taken a couple of hits. I hope the guitar is unmarked when it reaches me! :lol:

    Whatever it is, it will be excellent. The honchos here really know how to pick some beautiful stuff. It's nice that the place is run by fans.
