Win a PRS Mark Holcomb SE Guitar… With Your Shred Skills! Enter the Periphery Guitar Solo Contest!

Alright, Gear Mortals, I know you are all dying for a chance to show off your playing, and we’re gonna give it to you — along with a chance to win a guitar that is just being announced YESTERDAY! The PRS Mark Holcomb SE guitar is the SE version of Mark’s signature instrument, and now you have the opportunity to play your way towards owning one!


Here’s how to enter: first, download the solo section of the backing track version of Periphery’s song “The Price is Wrong” here. The track is your playground; write or improvise and record your own guitar solo from 0:05 – 0:23 on the backing track and upload it to our Soundcloud group amongst all your peers. Once all the entries have been submitted, Mark himself will listen to all the entries and choose his favorite, so keep your fingers crossed and hope that yours is the best. He is the sole judge in this contest and his word is law.

*Note: if you downloaded the full version of the track before we posted the version with only the solo section, please make sure you download the new one. Only entries submitted using the correct version will be considered.

This contest will remain open until July 29th, 2016 at 11:59pm EDT. Contest is open only to residents of the U.S. (sorry — shipping is expensive and customs can be a pain). Please read the official rules before submitting an entry.

Good luck and good shred to you! For comparison, we’ve posted the album version of “The Price is Wrong” below with Mark’s solo included. Periphery III: Select Difficulty comes out July 22nd on Sumerian Records.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
