THE GREAT GUITAR BUILD OFF 2020
Charity Kit Guitar Building Competition
THE BEST MAKERS ON YOUTUBE
The Greatest Guitar Building Competition
In these interesting times, the idea was hatched to create a competition to see who could build the best guitar in a limited time-frame and using the same base kit. The only rule is that the finished guitar will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to a charity of the builders choice and, well, the instrument should ROCK!
WHO WILL BE INVOLVED?
Get to Know the Competitors
HOW THE COMPETITION WILL WORK
We are aiming to gather five to ten builders and creators. Each competitor will be sent one of Crimson Guitars high end luthiers kits, which is to be customised and completed in any way the builder wishes.
All Makers will release, on the same day towards the end of July, if possible, at least one video on their YouTube channel to showcase the build. This should also include links to greatguitarbuildoff.com where the other videos can all be watched and voted on.
The guitars built will be auctioned off once the build series have finished on YouTube, the proceeds will go to each builders charity of choice.
We feel this is a great way to distract the public from what is currently going on but also help a bunch of great causes while creating some incredible content.
Crimson Guitars will be sponsoring the event by covering the cost of all of the kits that will be involved. We are asking you to get involved and give up your precious time for great causes and an opportunity to win “The Great Charity Build Off”.
The videos and photo's of each guitar, along with the builders biography and social links will be displayed on the website and the public can vote for the winner over one intense week of intense campaigning. These votes combined with the price that the kit guitar sells for, minus some kind of handicap based on how many subs the builders channel has will be how we work out the winner. This should make sure it’s a fair playing field and a little bit more fun.. in the end we are looking for an awesome build that the public want to own and talk about.
THE BUILD OFF
Each Builder will be given the opportunity to choose one of the 4 Luthiers kits that Crimson Guitars currently offers: the T-type, the S-type, the MF and the SRP kits
It is entirely up to the Builder how they customise and complete the Guitar.
Once every Builder has completed their guitar and released the video or videos about their builds; the Guitars will then be Auctioned off and all the proceeds given to each Builder's Charity of choice
DECIDING THE WINNER
The Winner of the Great Guitar Build Off will be decided through a combination of public vote and the amount that the finished Guitar is auctioned for.
Each Builder will be allowed one week of intense campaigning to their respective Social Media followers and YouTube subscribers
