Further thrills were provided by hosts Greg Kihn and his son Ry, as well as from a smokin’ house band comprised of MusicPlayer editors (including GP’s Jude Gold; Bass Player’s Jonathan Herrera; and Keyboard’s Ernie Rideout, Stephen Fortner, and Michael Gallant). Fabulous prizes were provided by the event sponsors: A choice of a Mesa/Boogie Stiletto amp or other model, a custom First Act “GH06” guitar, a Fender Stratocaster signed by all the judges, and a $500 Musician’s Friend gift certificate (GH06 winner); an Epiphone Les Paul, a Hughes & Kettner Switchblade amp, and a MF gift certificate (second place); and a MF gift certificate (third place).
But while the riffs have ceased reverberating at the Great American, and the judges have made their choices, you can still select your favorite GH06 guitarist! Just click to guitarplayertv.com, go to the Guitar Hero 2006 channel, and place your vote. All those who vote will be entered in a drawing to win a limited-edition First Act GH06 guitar just like Trey Alexander’s.
