Joe has been singing since he can remember and started playing guitar when he was 10. He's been using it as a songwriting tool ever since. He is passionate about melody and harmony and admires musicians who create these in unique ways. Check out his alternative / indie projects Best of Feelings and Zef Raček.


    How can people from southeast asia participate? The shipping cost from Europe is too expensive.

    Is there any obligation to use all parts of the kit? How many components might be replaced for higher quality or different sound or different style? Just as a wild example: would it be ok, to use a Ukulele kit, but replace the body with a solidbody-design to build an electric Ukulele that just uses the neck and tuners and strings?

    Is the JA kit not allowed in the contest? It is a very similar kit sold by Thomman beside these. A friend and I just purchased (today) 2 JA kits specifically for this contest. I have just now encountered the list of applicable kits. Do I need to cancel the order and change kits?

    It says “YES style” is allowed, that’s the JA style guitar. Maybe it’s a joke or a translation mistake because “ja” means “yes” in German. 🙂

    Hi I want to win guitar please

    Hola, hay unidades para zurdos?

    Why is the shipping so expensive?

    Do you have to use only parts that comes with the kit, or can you use your own?

    Would like to know more about other instruments.

    I have completed two kits, the P bass and the jazzmaster style. Can I submit videos of them?

    My video was submitted 10 minutes after the deadline, I have a slow upload speed and YouTube also now takes time to scan videos for copyright :/
    Will my submission be taken into account?
    How would I know?
