Guitar Giveaway!!!Guitar O.R and Rocky, a friend of the shop, have teamed together to give away 2 guitars and 2 amps to 2 people/kids that want to learn but maybe don't have the funds available to purchase one. Rocky only asks that we get a pic with the new owners. We only ask that these go to someone that has a genuine need. Please message me with a bit of a description on who could benefit.
We have an Ibanez RG(no trem bar), a Yamaha EG112, Peavey Rage 158 and Tranzamp B20. All in great working order. Thank you.

2nd Update. The young lady that had asked for the guitar and amp was from Ontario. Unfortunately, getting them there would be an issue. Therefore we still have both guitars and am amp to get to a good home.

This is a lovely gesture, but will the prizes actually be handed out? As the last contest required me to sign up for a mailing list and I did that, waited until the posted prize date and there was NO winner even after inquiring I was ignored. Was that just a rouse to get people on your mailing list?

Update!! 2 amps and one of the guitars have found a great new home!!(Announced shortly) One more guitar to go!! Thank you for all the likes and shares, we appreciate it very much.)

And this is why, I will always give you my business, you're a true Gent Jarin Winterhalt!!!

Peavey RAGE was my first amp!

So nice of you.

Hi Jarin, Dean here. I have a nominee for you. His Name is Mike Wilcox. Last year He brought his 80's Les Paul into you to be checked out. (the one with the 3 weird brass switches on it, that you weren't able to find out any info on it) Anyways, It played Great after you gave it your OR Lov'in!!! Mike has kept in in the Case ever since. 2 months ago, I asked Mike to come out for a Jam. He brought the LP and his Crappy little Fender 10 watt amp He's had since He was 14 yrs old (He's 54 now). The LP would tune, BUT, you could not play a chord on it.... I think the intonation is toast, and the Guitar is toast!!! Mike has Health problems, and is on a limited fixed income. He LOVES to play, and calls Himself "The Blues Man" Every Jam since, I lend him one of my Guitars, through his crappy amp. Please consider Mike, because I know He doesn't have the means to improve his Gear, and I know this would absolutely mean the world to Him!!!! Thank You for your consideration!!!! Cheers 🙂

Very thoughtful! Awesome guys!

That is super great of you guys doing that for someone that wants to learn.

You guys rock

Wow that is awesome. Good for you guys.

Awesome!

Well done guys

Yes will is this true

We are happy to get a guitar and amp into the hands of Ryder!! His uncle Skyler was nice enough to stop by and pick them up for him. Enjoy Ryder!!! @skylermills

Awesome gesture. You guys Rock!

You guys are awesome 😎
