Everyone please read the first post in the thread you'll see that the giveaway will not be until May. And that we will announce the method that we are using to enter the giveaway sometime after this Challenge is over.
an idle thought.... would tdpri/whoever pay a c-note for every challenge t-style completed in time? there are only 14 enteries, after all.
sure, select a winner, and perhaps a runner-up. give it/them away, as planned. then, auction ALL of the others and donate the proceeds to your personal choice of charity/s. sure, it costs, but what better way to celebrate the Tele than to spread it around? they won't bury you with the $ or the guitars....
Buy all 14 for $100 each, if they finish on time. Give the winning one away, per your orig deal. And then, AUCTION the others on eBay with all proceeds going to support this website. Bid high and raise BIG money for the site.
Some of these builds will bring serious money - no doubt!!
Any person who entered only expects to get a hundred bucks, on a lucky day. Is there a better way to support this site than celebrate the challenge, and give every entrant their dream at the same time.
