Pagan Poet’s Grand Poetry Contest – Good Luck All!

The Guitar: The Grand Prize Winner will be awarded my very unique 1961 Gibson SG Reissue electric guitar with original hardshell case and a custom paintjob. The painted lady was skillfully painted from the backcover artwork of the #1 issue of Pentacle magazine. I will include this collectable magazine when I ship the guitar.

This truly is a fine instrument and a one of a kind guitar!  I truly hope that you appreciate and above all enjoy playing “Luna”.

In Heart n Art,
