Default Caulfield Composites Christmas Giveaway - Double Guitar Stand 🎄🎄🎄

Hi Guys!

I was thinking about ways we could have a bit of fun on the run-up to the holidays, but also how I can give back to the community here on the Carbon Threads for all your support and feedback throughout the year; and I've decided to have a little giveaway.

As many of you will know, as well as being heavily focused on R&D of my composite musical instruments over the last two years; I have also got an online store where I make and sell accessories. One of my best selling products is my Double Decker Guitar Stand. I will be giving one of these away to one lucky winner.

To enter, there are no tricks or gimmicks. Simply Reply to this thread to get One Entry. I recommend adding a holiday joke, or an example of a fun holiday tradition you have celebrated in your household.

To make things a little more interesting. Add a Holiday Season Themed & Guitar themed image that you have taken to the post to get 2 entries.

To up the steaks even more; Add a Holiday season & Guitar Video to the post to get 3 entries.

Lets work together to make this a fun, interesting and warm holiday themed thread that we can collectively read through and enjoy.

Only one reply to the thread will count. Multiple Replies will be dismissed.

As the video is hosted on YouTube, and not everyone who will see it there will have an account here; each YouTube reply will count as one entry (and you must also be subscribed to my channel).

The competition will run until the end of the day on 26th of December. A winner will be announced and contacted before January 1st. The winner will be contacted; and will have 3 days to respond to claim their prize. If they do not respond, another winner will be chosen. I will cover all shipping expenses.

The stand will be made to suit the winners instruments; and will be high gloss piano black. You may also opt for a single guitar stand.

I reserve the right to remove any entries which do not have a holiday or music / acoustic guitar theme. Replies and entries are not limited to those with composite instruments; but as that is the community that I am most involved with, and the predominant focus of my business; this thread will be in in the Carbon Guitars thread. The entries will be added to a list and assigned a number. A random number generator will be used to select the winner, and this process will be documented. All content must be your own and you must have the permission of any individuals featured to post it online; It may be featured in the announcement of the winner.

I've tried to fool-proof this as much as possible; but the focus will be on making some fun reading and viewing. This competition is run by me, and me alone and was posted with the permission of the forum; but the forum and its Moderators have no further involvement. Direct all input or feedback in my direction!

If you have any further questions, please just PM me
Happy Holidays, And Good Luck ☘️

Guy at the front door: "Hi - I'm here to tune your guitar."
Guitarist: "I didn't call for a guitar tuner."
Guy at the front door: "Yeah, I know, but your neighbors did."

Old joke. I'm an old guy. Merry Christmas, CF friends!
Some CF, some wood.

Thank you for doing this. Since I happen to have 2 carbon fiber guitars, this would be pretty cool to have. I also have been following your builds. When funds are right I would love to have a 3rd

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down, “happy.” They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life. —John Lennon
