    If I had to guess, interest simply fell off. For the first couple months, Max took the 5 guitars with the most nominations and put them in the poll. However, for the October voting thread, only 3 guitars ended up getting nominated at all.

    They probably decided it wasn't worth the hassle, especially since a) there are no prizes, and b) there's no benefit of exposure like the original GOTM contest had where the winner was posted on the site's homepage.

    But I always think that your own ego for winning plus your thread gets stickied plus you can use that line down the road if you ever sell it (Like JPMike). I think that's enough of a reward :shrug:

    I admit that there probably aren't enough customs coming through every month. I still believe that 6ers should count as well :lol:

    I may be a little biased, My Thorn would be January GOTM for sure :lol:

    But seriously there was a 6 string custom once that was the best guitar that month but it didn't qualify, I just don't like the whole 'Well it's not enough strings so it doesn't qualify' argument. Same thing as say TGP saying 'Well it's an 8 string so it doesn't qualify'.... Who cares how many strings it has!!! A guitar is a guitar!!!!!

    The risk is that every GOTM becomes a Skervesen :rofl:

    Rant over…. Regardless, Where is Max and where is GOTM :squint:

    Because the "spirit" of the award is to reward guitars that go above and beyond the normal range of a regular guitar.

    I figured he'd maybe slowed down, but you're right, he hasn't posted at all since November 25th. =\
