Enter Raffle to Win A Guitar To Save Our Venues
The effects of the Corona Virus pandemic have put over 400 Grassroots Music Venues in the UK at risk of permanent closure. To put it bluntly, without these venues the opportunities for artists and audiences to connect at a local level may in many cases simply disappear. These venues provide an essential platform for emerging artists, and without them many of our most-loved bands would not have had a platform to advance their careers. The situation is dire. Government support has been exhausted, and it now falls to the wider industry and us as artists, music fans and local communities to take action. #SaveOurVenues is a campaign by the Music Venue Trust which has already raised over £2.5 million pounds. I wanted to do something to support the campaign and so built the guitar offered as a prize here. All proceeds will go to the Music Venue Trust in support of the #SaveOurVenues campaign.
This hand made guitar replicates a classic Fender Stratocaster with its instantly recognisable tremolo bridge, modern-style tuners and single coil pickups. The guitar has a two-piece Ash body with Maple neck and Ebony fingerboard. The electronics are a standard configuration with two tone, one volume and a five-way selector. The plates and art design were produced by Gig.Ink. Tim generously donated both his time and the plates themselves in support of this project. Many thanks also to Crimson Guitars who also kindly supplied their excellent finishing oil, which gives a beautiful wood finish without affecting the natural tone or sustain of the wood. The winner will receive 1 guitar, 1 soft protective case, 1 lead, 1 strap and a small bag of accessories. The accessories include a tremolo bar, two adjustment Allen keys and a couple of picks. I hope they enjoy playing the guitar as much as I have enjoyed building it. To me this guitar is just one lasting reminder of the tremendous efforts of the UK's community of artists, music fans and the industry as a whole to #SaveOurVenues.
