Gazillion-selling superstars Nickelback have kicked off a contest with People's Choice for music fans to create and vote on the name of the new Gibson USA Les Paul Guitar for the band's lead singer, Chad Kroeger. The winning entrant that creates the name of the new guitar will receive two premium tickets and meet & greet passes to a VIP concert event on October 30 in Las Vegas, in addition to an autographed new Chad Kroeger Limited Edition Gibson USA Les Paul guitar. Put those thinking caps on and come up with a clever and creative name, kids, because the prizes are awesome and you can put on your resume that it was you who named a Chad Kroeger-model guitar.
"I'm very excited about the upcoming release of my Gibson USA signature Les Paul and it's an amazing opportunity to be able to work with the People's Choice Awards to have our fans, the greatest fans in the world, come up with the name of this guitar. The People's Choice Awards have always been very special to Nickelback because it is truly about and for the fans; the ultimate forum where they have the final say. It only makes sense that we would engage the fans in this very special process," enthused Nickelback's Chad Kroeger in a statement.
Gibson USA is known worldwide for producing some of the most collectible and sought after guitars ever manufactured. In creating his own signature line with the company, Kroeger will join a list of extraordinary musical icons that span the globe. In this limited edition, the guitar will be produced for the global market to celebrate the music and talent of Nickelback's lead singer. Specs include a one-of-a-kind color specifically created for Chad Kroeger, in addition to the singer's signature silver stars on the back of the neck, a Ghost Piezo system and Ghost Burstbuckers.
Here's how to enter: guitar name submissions will be accepted until August 16, 2010 at this site. On August 17, the band will narrow down the selections and present their top choices back to the fans who will ultimately decide the name for the new guitar. By voting for the guitar name, fans are automatically entered to win tickets to the 2011 People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles.
To submit names, fans can sign up at no cost to be a People's Choice member.
