Invitational 2022

 

 

The Invitational is an invite only category of the Great Guitar Build Off competition, a small group of hand picked YouTubers, generally with larger than average followings, will compete for dominance while raising money for GGBO and for a charity/all around great cause of their choice.

Competitors will be all be given the same standardised Crimson Guitars Uncut kit plus a hard case and will use that, within certain guidelines, to create a one of a kind guitar.

This instrument will be entered into a Prize Draw off with:

  • 5% of the proceeds being put up as 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes in the 3 public categories
  • 40% going to GGBO
  • 45% will go to a charity or good cause of the builders choice
  • while 10% pays the prize draw worldwide licencing fees, a sad but essential part of the whole competition. 

The top 3 up will be chosen by the other builders in the competition, the GGBO academy in a closed vote. Guitar Builders judging other guitar builders.

The Prize Draw funds are only released on safe delivery of the instrument to the winner, who will be liable for shipping costs from the builder to themselves.
