    Bugger, another comp where you have to be a legal resident of USA to be eligible. Come on guys, at least agree to let others enter and ship to wherever if the winner will pick up the tab!

    Ive wanted a Gibson Les Paul for as long as I can remember! When I was 16 I could have got one for $500.00! I bought a car instead.
