Your chance to win one of the famous Fairbridge Festival guitars is here! Every year, the amazing Scott Wise generously creates a unique guitar for our festival raffle.
The 2021 Fairbridge Festival Raffle Guitar is Scott Wise’s “Model 4” guitar, as usual built from prime Australian tonewoods. It is based on a 1901 design from the U.S.A.
Scott had a chance to play a 1930s instrument of this design in the U.S. not long after he started making guitars in 1978 and found it to be one of the best steel string guitar sounds he had ever heard.
Its old world looks, with the slotted headstock and 12 fret neck are deceptive. It has a big, balanced sound. Scott has many examples of this guitar out in the world, amongst them is American bluesman Eric Bibb’s favourite instrument!
You can watch the guitar being built and keep up to date with its progress at Scott’s Facebook page here.
There are also other amazing prizes on offer, thanks to our wonderful partners, Getaway Outdoors, Nannup Music Festival, The River, Awesome Festival and Fairbridge Village.
At only $5 per ticket, the Fairbridge Festival Raffle is amazing value. Only 4,000 tickets on sale, so you better get in quick!
