Leon

Thanks for this. Might have to re-schedule some business trips to coincide with the festival. Just don't tell my partners.

Greetings,

The below link shows the winners, but not which guitars they selected.

Kind of interesting that there is no first prize winner, but one second and two thirds.

Cheers,

Thank you. I guess as far as the guitar prizes go, it is the same as he/she gets to choose one guitar before the third place.
