Grand Prize - Rare edition Ibanez Ozzfest Guitar, sponsored by GuitarTrader
The winner of the rare edition Ibanez "Ozzfest" Guitar is Peter Teipe, from Yorba Linda, California - "I didn't think I would win this guitar, but I'm really excited to get my hands on it.  I've got a few more grinding metal riffs that need to be worked out into songs, so this should be the perfect guitar for that.  

Peter Teipe, winner of the Ozzfest Guitar

I've always liked classic rock, but there has always been a metal influence in my playing and my songs. The custom Ozzfest graphics should help inspire me towards some heavier sounds.    PJ's Guitar Chords, is a great resource for Guitar players.  A lot of good information and resources for guitarists.   Guitar Trader was very friendly. Nice selection of Guitars and amps"  

Congratulations Peter, many happy years of playing your new Ibanez Ozzfest guitar!!
