I am going to give away a very cool vintage PRS pickup as an experiment. It is a hard-to-find Singlecoil Bass pickup. This is literally a singlecoil and a null (empty) coil mounted together on a humbucker platform. :cool:

Contest Rules:
1) Whoever has the most posts when this thread hits 500 posts wins the pickup. In the event of a tie, I'll do something fun with those involved to pick a winner.
2) Posts are ONLY bound by the rules of the site.
3) I am sending the pickup to Chris (CRGTR) for inclusion in the pickup shootout. The winner has to coordinate with Chris to get it shipped. See 1st post in this thread for complete details on shipping.

The Fine Print:
I will revise the rules to resolve any unforseen issues (remember, it is an experiment) and I reserve the right to do so without a lick of notice. If there is any dispute regarding the winner, the contest is void and I will restart the experiment. The WINNER is responsible for any and all shipping costs, fee's. tarrifs, taxes, etc. This is my thread and my experiment, not a PRS Guitars sanctioned contest, so there are NO warranties expressed or implied. I am not an employee of PRS guitars. The pickup is being given to you AS IS. If it is damaged in shipping or is lost, I will NOT be refinding your shipping costs. If the juice isn't worth the squeeze, don't play. I reserve the right to end the game if someone gets their undies in a wad and ruins the fun. VOID where prohibited. No animals were harmed during the creation of this experiment. Member: PRS Signature Club.

Caught you!

I quote the "current" rule 3

"3) EVERY post must have the number of the post typed in the text field OR INCLUDE AN IMAGE OF THE NUMBER - so this post, as an example, must have the number one (#1) represented in the text field AND that number must match the post count indicated in the top right hand corner of the post. So... if two people post "#3" at the same time, the one that fails to match the number in the top right corner is disqualified and should be deleted by the person who posted it (or a mod). If you dare to post #4 (in that scenario) before the overlapping set of #3's is resolved, it might just work out. Or... it could create a train wreck. That's part of the experiment."

In your post the number only appears in the PICTURE and is not TYPED in the TEXT. It is therefore an invalid post and must be deleted, as must be all the posts which follow it EXCEPT this on which is the first correct post since 43...

Bummer.

Well, I was curious to know whether or not someone would actually do that to all the other players or not. Now I know.

I'm not going to continue the thread like this and it isn't fair to all who have contributed to start over. So... I am invoking my right (because its my experiment) to change the rules. Screw the number system. It doesn't work. Part of the experiment was to learn what WILL work.

As such, here is the new (and final, I hope) set of rules:
1) Whoever has the most posts when this thread hits 500 posts wins the pickup. I'll undelete all previously deleted posts.
2) Posts are ONLY bound by the rules of the site.
3) I am sending the pickup to Chris (CRGTR) for inclusion in the pickup shootout. The winner has to coordinate with Chris to get it shipped. See 1st post in this thread for complete details on shipping.

I don't know where I'll be then, Doc," he said, "but I won't smell too good, that's for sure."
