The pursuit of sound! is very important... but we are going to send you off again this time. m(-_-)m
It is natural for guitarists to be concerned about sound. Therefore, replacing pickups, wiring materials, capacitors, etc. is a very effective customization. It is the first factor to consider when modifying a guitar. However! Let's modify guitars and have fun together this time! Let's have everyone see it at the Musical Instrument Fair! This contest is for everyone to have fun modifying guitars and show them off at the Music Fair, so unfortunately, customizations that do not change the appearance of the guitar are not eligible. It is a very important element, and customizing a guitar without changing its appearance is also a great way to show off your skills! However, it would be rude to judge and give preference to sound modifications, so please understand.
Let's enjoy the guitar! is the concept of this contest. Even if you just put a sticker on your guitar, if you have a great sense of style, there is a possibility of winning the Grand Prix!
