Contest: Create Your Own Music Gift List & Win a $100 Guitar Center Gift Certificate

guitarcenterMusicians are notoriously hard to shop for. If you’ve ever dated one (or are one), you know first hand. You go to the hip, local music store with the hopes of finding the perfect accessory to show you care only to find they already have everything. Either that or you can’t keep up with the lingo and end up telling the clerk you need a strap for a graphing calculator.

Well Guitar Center is trying to make this problem a thing of the past. They’ve teamed up with artists Gregg Gordan (who has worked with Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Ween), Andrew McKraken (Jay Reatard and Modest Mouse) and Henry Owing (Ted Leo and Fiery Furnaces) to make a Christmas list that is both visually unique and practical. In other words, they’ve created a create-your-own wish list that looks cool to gearheads.

Where do we come in? Well, we’ve got a $100 gift card to Guitar Center. And we feel like giving it away. Why? Because it’s Christmas time, you dolt. So if you create your own wish list here, and send us a JPEG or screenshot of the results, you could win it.

All you need to do is make the wish list, send us an e-mail at with the subject Guitar Center Wish List. Be sure to include that JPEG we mentioned and all your contact info in case you win. Now list away.
