    Win Chris, or Josh's, ESP LTD H-207!

    [​IMG]

    Members around last year will recall the old raffle, hosted by Chip The Raffle Rat and won by Josh. Well, Josh never played it much, and to help out the site he has decided to give the guitar back to us. So again, it's time to send this guy to a good home! The guitar is in player condition, has a few bumps and bruises and depending on how you like your axes, probably could use a fresh setup since it's basically sat in the case for the better part of a year.

    Now, before we get started, you might be thinking "Hm, well I already donated to the site, what's up with raffling it off twice?". In light of this, 100% of the proceeds from this raffle will be donated to the The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, after shipping and paypal fees. You can check them out and their policies here: ASPCA: The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

    And now, a few pics of our dusty and wayward guitar in all it's green goodness. It's pretty, it plays well, it has new strings, it has a black cliplock strap and it needs someone to play it!

    Every entrant will get site contributor features on here, including the tag, increased PM storage, bold username and access to the image uploader, as well as the special User Profile features. This counts as a site contribution! If you're already a contributor, you get a hug from Drew. If you're outside the US, you'll have to cover customs/VAT or any of that jazz. Regular shipping will be on us. Hey, it's for charity. ;)

    The Drawing

    I will be on business travel from February 25-March 7, so I'll take entries up until Sunday the 6th of March. Since I won't be home, and every proper ss.org event requires me, Drew and some sort of booze, the actual drawing (barring any unforseen delays) should be the weekend of the 9th. As anyone who saw last year's drawing can tell you, while we won't say what we're doing, it will be:

    • Fair
    • On Video
    • Ridiculous

    I'm in! Sign me up!

    To enter, paypal $20 to paypal@sevenstring.org. For the sake of my sanity, please include the following so I know who you are! If you don't use paypal, unfortunately since I won't be home until the drawing weekend I can't take regular snailmail entries. Keep in mind that you don't need a paypal account to actually use paypal, so you can use your regular credit card w/o an account to enter.

    • Your name and address.
    • Your shipping address, if it's different.
    • Your forum name.
    • The best email address to use for contacting you.
    • Mention the fact that you're entering the raffle somewhere in the body/comments.

    Once entries start coming in, I'll update a list in this thread. Your name will correspond to a number, and that number will probably end up being your "ticket" number in the actual drawing.

    Chip The Raffle Rat, may he rest in peace, thanks you in advance, as I'm sure the ASPCA will when they get a check from ss.org. :) I'd also like to once again thank Josh for the guitar itself, as he could easily have just thrown it on eBay but instead opted to donate it back to ss.org so that it can find a good home.

    Any questions, post up, and please fire a post up in this thread as well if you sent in an entry.

    Again, I will be on work travel until Saturday, March 8 (and on a plane most of the day). The drawing will be Sunday the 9th, barring any severe jet-lag/hangover that may occur. The deadline to enter is Friday the 7th.

    I'm tempted to enter because its for a good cause and because thats an awesome guitar.

    However, I have no idea how much customs/VAT would come to for shipping to the UK :lol:
    I'll get back to you :yesway:

    Josh is awesome for donating it back to the boards, and like you say, not going through eBay :yesway: Thanks, man!

    Bah, I would be all over this if it weren't for the bolt-on construction; that natural binding is heavenly!

    It sure does. I own a 7321 too, the 207 is just a much nicer instrument all around.

    Hey Chris I have an idea for this raffle. You and drew get seriously drunk, then you or Drew get blindfolded and the other one will throw papers with the numbers at the other. Whatever one gets caught is the loser, last paper left is the winner.

    Once everything's said and done and it's drawing time, I'll start another thread for ideas on how to draw it. Just keep this thread for entries. :)

    Yeah, but I'd never play it! :lol:

    Eh, if I was an Ibanez fanboi I might care about that, but all the Ibanez 7s I've played have been a load of arse, in my opinion
