Finally a competition here in Australia! MyGeneration.com.au is giving you the chance to win a Gibson Les Paul signed by none other than living legend Keith Richards! The competition is promoting the new Rolling Stones movie ‘Shine a light’ directed by Martin Scorsese which is released in Australia on May 29 and all you have to do is vote on your favourite Rolling Stones riff and enter your details to be in the running. Now I’m no Gibson expert by any means but in the ad they say a Gibson Les Paul, in the competition details it says a Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker (do Gibson still make Melody Makers?)
I would like to know exactly which model they are talking about because there is a big difference between a $500 melody maker and a $2000 Les Paul Standard but hey if it is free and signed by Keith Richards I’m not complaining I’d be happy with a guitar pick with Keef’s signature!
Check out the competition page at MyGeneration.com.au.
Update : I’ve just been informed that the guitar is NOT a Melody Maker but a Gibson Les Paul Studio Premium Plus! (Natural finish), valued at around $4000.
