    Got a G7th Art Capo (retails for $54.99) and a bottle of polish, plus a coupon for 25% off at some boutique cable company.

    Wouldn't have spent that much on a capo for myself, despite rave reviews from a few friends and players I respect, but now that it's here and I've spent a little bit of time with it, I'm pretty happy. I can definitely see why some folks like these so much.

    It was a fun roll of the dice and I got something I'll certainly use.

    I got some hosa pedal cables which I was in need of.
    2 sets of strings in my gauge.
    Chicken pick I’ll use.
    Black strap always handy.

    I got a usable box of crap, no complaints here.
    It was fun and I will treat myself again next year.

    Very similar here, except my freebie is a bass plugin. I don't play bass and I don't use plugins, and I'm not even sure how to sell this thing. To redeem you take your picture holding the coupon and I suppose you can download the plugin--but then I couldn't sell it I figure due to DRM. And not sure anyone would buy the coupon either for a Joey Sturgis Bassforge Hellraiser.

    Last year I got a Red Dog pedal by Rockbox, which I actually use.

    I bought one, My mother in law bought one, and my wife snagged one after refreshing the screen multiple times after it said it was sold out. I though forsure the first comers would have the best gifts since I got one exactly at 10am central....? I literally got the same exact thing in ALL 3 boxes. Straps, picks and stickers.......that’s it

    I didn't bother this year, didn't get much last year. It was pretty much the same as everyone is reporting this year, stickers, strings, picks, a tuner and a strap. I put the money to a pickup instead :D

    For $40 you could have bought one of many Joyo pedals. I gave up on the mystery stocking a few years ago. I think they really mislead you by saying you get $40 worth of stuff. Not many people I know would agree that the most common box of stuff is worth that.

    Promo stickers and martin pencils are not something most people purchase. I thought that stuff was free. I get free picks with most china ebay orders, they are fake picks but still.

    I got the standard box with a tuner, strings, picks etc. Oh, well its a gamble. The strap was really bare bones and solid white.

    I got the exact same pack.. it was a little disappointing since I've never been able to participate because I live in Canada. However this year my wife heard me talking about it and arranged cross border service as a Christmas gift and she was even more disappointed than I was. Technically the value is a little more than what she paid, but it's not stuff I'll ever use and pretty anticlimactic that there was only two things...you'd think they could have jammed it with picks or stickers or something.

    Oh well, it was an experience and certainly one I won't repeat.
