Rotosound Music Strings – PRS SE Custom Giveaway



Visit Rotosound Music Strings this weekend on Stand E4, where every packet of strings purchased enters you into a competition to win a PRS SE Custom 22 Guitar in vintage sunburst.
The winner will be drawn at 4.00pm on the Sunday of the show.

The more you buy – the more chance you have of winning.



Avian Guitars were due to exhibit at The Guitar Show this year, due to the CITES Treaty they have found their guitars stuck with HMRC and are therefore unable to attend.

We had agreed that they would give us a guitar to giveaway at the show, being the rather stand up company that they are, they have still honoured this committment.

So over the two days of the show, you will be able to enter a competition to win an Avian Songbird Deluxe Fan Fret worth over £1800.00

Details of this guitar are below – check out their website here >>AVIAN<<

Thank You Avian!
