Musta got a little too close to the mark to get him all riled like that...
Nice, hope the winner is very happy with it. Whatever it is. I didn't know the site did this. Kewl.
Just discovered in another thread that Musician's Friend is selling this Custom Shop Limited Edition for $6,000. Could this be the mystery guitar? Hmmm........ it would definitely be a fitting prize in a forum dedicated to the Telecater.
Yea! I actually have money this year to donate and be eligible. Let the games begin!
No...it's just a box. Money's tight this year so Paul couldn't manage an actual guitar.
So there's no point the rest of you lot entering...
Hmmmm....not too keen on that one. Prefer me Baja!!
Keep an eye out. There will be more prizes to come, not just this one. At least there have been in the past. EVERY prize is EXCELLENT from top to bottom. Guitars, amps, pickups, parts.
Also for all the new members who may wonder about the validity of this fundraiser, I won First Prize a few years ago. I would however gladly donate to this site without the notion of winning anything. The raffle is a bonus.
Cool, I like just getting to see new gear and watch how excited the winners get! It's a great forum and I'm always so glad to be able to donate when I can. Good luck everyone and thanks again Paul!
So what do I have to do exactly to be in the draw ??
Where do I make a donation ??
Also, will their be other guitars being won ???
Can somebody detail what happened last year ?
So Fender (FMIC) is nice enough to donate a guitar with a list price of $6k to a forum that they are not officially associated with and some of you guys think the right thing to do is speculate and look inside the gift horse's mouth and slam their design team?
Stay classy TDPRI.
Donations: A facility to pay by PayPal and/or CC is set up 6-weeks or so before the draw.
Last year, two fabulous guitars, an amp, bodies, necks, pick ups and parts were all up for grabs.
Last year, as in the previous years, the draw is made live, but to avoid a site crash as hundreds of hopeful TDPRI-ers refersh the page to see if they've won, the winners are anounced via Twitter and Facebook and then published on the TDPRI. FYI, you don't need a Twitter and/or Facebook account to follow the draw.
It's great fun and it raises some of the funds to help Paul Green keep the TDPRI as it is. The best online community in the world.
Thanks Peter, I've been on here for quite a while and never knew this went on !
Their design team in 1947 maybe.
