OK, it's time once again too
or get off the pot.
Bruce has kindly volunteered to do the assembly of the guitar so long as I handle the logistics side of things.
As always we will do the drawing on the last NASDAQ business day of this year using their numbers just like we have done in the past.
Time to put together our list of needed parts and also to the members and contributors who will be eligible to win.
Thumbs denotes parts received at The Crib.

Any active member with a minimum of 100 posts will receive 1 automatic entry. To claim your automatic entry you must post in this thread asking for it.
Like last year additional chances go to the folks that actually pony up the parts. So in besides your automatic entry, extra chances may be earned in the following form.
German Floyd Rose = 4 chances
KRAMER HS Case = 4 chances
Generic HS Case = 3 chances
Body = 3 chances
Neck = 3 chances
Neck Pickup = 2 chances
Bridge Pickup = 2 chances
Neck Plate = 2 chances
All other misc parts = 1 chance *Maximum.
In order to encourage participation from more members, you will receive an additional chance for ONE part only. The part of the greatest value will be used to determine the additional entry amount
*To be clear:
A donation of a set of strings = 1 chance.
A donation of a set of strings, a strap, and a truss rod cover would = 1 chance.
A donation of a set of strings, a strap and a KRAMER CASE would = 4 chances.
A donation of a set of Body, Neck, and a KRAMER CASE would = 4 chances.
ANY MEMBER may purchase 1 chance per $25.00 donation. This means if you are a member with less than 100 posts you may still get in the game. There is no limit on the number of donation chances you may purchase.
A lil clarification since I am doing the book work- but not the build this year:
The first person to pledge an item will get the opportunity at that additional chance. From the date of pledge I ask you to PLEASE get the part to Bruce within 2 weeks of your pledge. This makes it easier on me to account for all the different items coming from the 4 corners of the world. It also makes it easier on Bruce because a pledged part that has not arrived is difficult to assemble.
He is good....but not that good.
I will constantly add to the list above as contributions are spoken for. Please hit me with a PM for PayPal instructions for cash contributions, and a shipping address for project parts.
Finally- remember the spirit in which this Giveaway is done. Let's put together a nice Kramer guitar to live on in the hands of someone who loves the Kramer brand...Please help make this happen!
It's not really hoarding if your shit is cool....
