It's the most wonderful time of the year- Holiday Raffle time!
If this is your first time participating, then you should probably know the reason behind this contest. One of the most frequent things I hear from fans and followers is how they want one of my custom builds more than any other piece of gear on the market, but the price tag is just too steep for their wallet. I sympathize with this plight, I was once a struggling picker who saved all my strings that weren't yet rusted for backups, and my inability to afford a killer guitar is the primary reason I started building them in the first place. So, I decided that once a year, I was going to give all of those folks a chance to have a Banker of their own by raffling off one of my builds. Since it seems to grow in popularity every year, I've also fattened up the pool of prizes to match. Last year there were two guitars in the prize pool, so this year I've got to at least match that, right? How about a Grand Prize Ironman CT in aged Silverburst that retails for $9,000? How about 1st and 2nd Runner Up prizes that amount to over $8000 in custom build credit? Are you not entertained?!?
Upon purchasing a ticket, an entry number will be assigned to your name by Raffle Creator. We then upload all of the entrants to a spreadsheet, sort them randomly, and assign each entry an additional number that is then placed in a tumbler, spun around, and pulled by hand just like they did at your grandmothers Bingo hall. The drawing will be held December 15th at 7PM EST live on Instagram, where you can tune in to see the lucky winners chosen. If you cannot tune in live do not fret, winners will be notified via email the next day. In other words, you do not need to be present in order to win.
*INTERNATIONAL CONTESTANTS: This contest is open to anyone worldwide, however it has been noted in the past that a handful of international entrants experienced difficulty processing entry fees through Raffle Creator. Unfortunately if you experience this issue, there is nothing I can do on my end to assist as all payment processing is handled by them. We cannot ship to any country that is subject to any type of embargo or trade restriction by the United States of America.
*DOMESTIC SHIPPING: Shipping charges for winners in the continental US will be covered by Banker.
*INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: International shipping charges and associated taxes/duties will be the responsibility of the recipient. If you live outside of the continental US and are a prize winner, I will collect your shipping information and provide a shipping quote via FedEx.
*PRIZES OFFERED “AS IS”: No changes, modifications, upgrades, or redemptions are allowed for any of the prizes in this contest. Custom Build Credit is not redeemable for cash, nor does it carry any cash value. Banker is not responsible for any personal liability or tax implications resulting from winning any of the listed prizes. Consult your CPA or tax preparer for such advice, I cannot provide it to you.
*REDEMPTION WINDOW*: Custom build credit does not have an expiration date, but it is NOT transferrable. Standard lead times for custom orders are 12 months from date of order, and this will be treated in the same fashion as a standard order. Winner is entitled to one consultation call to review specs and details of order, and will receive updates/photos of build progress the same as any other client/build. Winner is responsible for paying for any upgrades/overages beyond the credit amount, as well as any taxes or duties associated with acquiring the guitar.
