    In honor of mental health awareness month (May), Chef Brian Tsao, also a guitar player, put on a raffle for a number of prizes with the proceeds going to Hope For The Day who offer suicide prevention services. I don't usually partake in raffles but having had family commit suicide I felt this was a good cause and wanted to contribute. Well I ended up taking the grand prize making this the second won guitar in 2019! I need to go to Vegas!

    I'd like to thank @agufish for mentioning the raffle in one of his videos which is how I learned of it. This will be my only superstrat type guitar and will be great fun!

    Here is the latest picture posted by Chef Brian Tsao along with the build videos that he posted. They're all short so a quick watch and he mixes in food which is fun.

    BTW, Chapman Guitars, who also donated to the prizes, realized that I also won their ML3 prototype and posted to Chef Brian Tsao's Instagram of the winner video. Chef Brian's reply sums this year up perfectly:

    "WHAAAAAAT! INSANE!"

    So far this year, you have won two guitars AND you have had way better weather than nearly all of us. Where do I sign up for the Hater club? :D

    Wow, we have a saying in Canada about where you must store that lucky horseshoe. Very cool. Couldn't have gone to a nicer fella! I looked on the Chapman Twitter feed the other day didn't see them retweet yout CSB tele photo...

    I kept checking as well. Didn't see it so I also posted to Instagram, also tagging them. Then they emailed me earlier in the week asking is I had received the guitar (guess they didn't see the tag notices) so I replied with both Twitter and Instagram links. They said it was a lovely photo but still no retweet. I don't know if they didn't like the shout out that I included.

    The Instagram post does show up under their tagged section so there's that.

    Got her last week and it's a great guitar. Neck feels like it has no finish on it but smooth to play. Love the bridge, keeps tune great. Neck pickup is a bit muddy but bridge sounds good. He wired it up with coil spitting push pull pots for both pickups so plenty to play around with.

    And here are my two 2019 winnings (so far... Haha) together.
