2017 CCGS Door Prize Winner!

The winner of the Epiphone Les Paul Jr. was Daniel Ramos of Santa Maria
Daniel has been playing guitar for 3 years and only had an acoustic guitar,

we hope you and others enjoy you playing your new guitar for 
years to come. Just keep rockin'!

Winner of the 2012 CCGS Guitar Giveaway!



Zhanna Stinson of Oceano, California, is the winner of the 2012 CCGS Guitar Giveaway. Zhanna and her
husband, James, took their son, Justin, to the show. Justin, 10, has been taking guitar lessons from Glen Rathbone at 
Lightning Joe's Guitar Heaven for more than 3 years. Justin heard about the show while listening to 99.1 The Fox radio station
and talked his parents into taking him. Justin liked the show alot, especially "the amp in the trailer" (the Quilter Amplification booth, 
with the amp demo room in the 1967 Airstream trailer). Justin said will come to the show again next year. 
And, of course, Zhanna has given the new Fender Squire Stratocaster she won to her son, Justin. 
Congratulations to Zhanna and Justin!
