    I love this time of year. If you need a place to store those boxes I can clean out a closet.

    So Fender donates a guitar every year to help fund the site? Whoa... That's classy...

    Everyone, you are just far too optimistic. I'll bet it's just a box full of strings and we all get one set free, provided we buy a new Fender guitar. :p:p:lol::lol:

    Well... if you're like me, you enter the contest every year and other people win the prizes. Some very cool prizes.

    Well I guess it's that time of the year when you send out those nice cakes in brown boxes.

    Paul, is there a way you could get the PayPal thing back to working?
    I still don't have any other international alternative at hand.

    ...and I'd love to try a slice of that cake.

    I don't know, logo looks a little crooked, and I'm not quite sure the coloring on that cardboard looks quite right. Definately the clear tape is the wrong width. I'd say it's a fake.

    Good reply there Sean.

    Good reply also motor_city_tele ........... the way some "experts" on this forum critique guitars, they must think real Fenders are made with a 3-D scanner/duplicator.

    Hmmmm............... in a way, the modern ones are I guess.

    +1. You can tell by the hook in the "r" in the logo on the box, the font is a bit off... definitely a fake.

    I'm sure hoping not. That's like a blind date who ".....has a great personality."

    The BEST day I had at work last year was the day of the contest. I was wondering when it would rear its beautiful head again.

    Any hints as to the time frame of when the insanity will go down this year??
