Readers’ Choice Awards 2007 Ballot

September 20, 2006

To make things super-duper easy, you can vote online at guitarplayer.com (just look for the Readers’ Choice Ballot link) or, if you’re a fan of old-school info delivery, you can simply mark your votes on this print ballot and mail it to the GP office (GP Readers’ Choice, 2800 Campus Drive, San Mateo, CA 94403).

We’re accepting one ballot per reader, but you can vote for as many products in any one category as you see fit. (And to all those, ahem, cagey types out there—well, you’ll just have to wonder if we can filter out numerous online votes from the same source.) The designated products you are voting on were reviewed in the pages of GP between January 2006 and December 2006, and there are a couple of write-in options, as well. Our only request is that you try to vote for gear with which you have personal experience, as you are, after all, an informed GP reader who (hopefully) doesn’t wish to turn this august poll into a popularity contest. Obviously, the Artist category is all about honoring the players that inspire and challenge you, so make your opinions known!

Deadline for both online and print ballots is December 31, 2006.
