Back in November at our FADER Sideshow at CMJ, Guitar Center donated four Fender Stratocasters for all the musicians to tag up and deface. They turned out real crazy looking and still shred! More importantly, Guitar Center is bringing another batch to our house in Austin, appropriately dubbed The Fort, to be vandalized once again by our monster roster. So now that we have all these guitars sitting around, we've decided to give them to you, our loyal readers. All you have to do is email us a photo of the best shredface/hotface you can find. We've given you some examples above (Richard's Law: one need not hold an axe to shred.). Please top them. We'll select the best and send the winners a free geetar all ready to wail on. In addition, Guitar Center will be hosting something called Axe-Smith at our space in Austin, run by Schecter Guitars and supported by Ernie Ball, Crate, and Ampeg, where bands visiting the Levi’s spot will be able to bring their guitars, basses, etc. in to have set-up by a top guitar tech. That means no shreddage, no excuses! We're talking to you, Pete Townshend!
