“Being a contestant allowed me to get a foot in some doors of this industry. Winning the competition kicked down the others. It’s led to a lot of big things for me and my career as an artist and as a guitarist.” –Ladd Smith, GPGS07 Winner

“If I were a rocket ship (a Robotic Rocket Ship), GUITAR PLAYER’S GUITAR SUPERSTAR would be the launch pad. It helped me with my album, The Electric Arc, providing an abundance of exposure and contacts.” –Les Robot, First Runner-Up, GPGS07

“I tour with several bands, and everywhere I go, new fans and old tell me they saw my photos in GUITAR PLAYER and ask me about the experience.” –Danny B. Harvey, Second Runner-Up, GPGS07

“I wish I could explain how much this event has changed my life. Since the competition, I have played with some real guitar greats, been endorsed by several companies, featured in magazines, and taught a master class at a leading national guitar festival. This was the experience of a lifetime. If you play guitar and love it, enter this event!” – Trey Alexander, Winner, GPGS06
