Thank you to everyone who entered the Modified Guitar Contest,
and those who are considering applying for the contest

It has been announced that the Musical Instruments Fair 2020 will be canceled to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus. This is a very unfortunate situation for our contest, whose goal was to exhibit at the Musical Instrument Fair, and we would like to thank the Musical Instrument Fair Association for making the difficult decision to put everyone's safety and health above all else.

Despite the circumstances, we have decided to continue the modified guitar contest in response to the wishes of everyone who has already entered. Therefore, we are extending the deadline for submissions to September 30. If you have been wondering if it is too late, please take this opportunity to apply.

Let's all enjoy playing the modified guitar at StayHome safely. We would like to make this a safe and fun contest, and would like to thank all the companies that have sponsored and supported us. More details will be announced as soon as they are finalized. Please look forward to it.
