    But it's not a give away, it's a prize draw. Buy your ticket and cross your fingers.

    I have problems with describing things as "giveaways" when they really aren't.

    Agreed. More of a raffle than a giveaway.

    TDPRI is owned by the same guy that owns this site, not sure why they don't do it here.

    If only we knew someone that constantly ran across great deals on Strats that could be put up for a raffle... After proper compensation of course.

    But for a minimum donation of $25 they may win a Telecaster.

    131,428 members... slim odds... I'll roll the dice. I like the forum...

    Only paying members, I'd guess that cuts the odds to around 200/1

    Sounds like a great idea. Win-win.

    Had no problem coughing up a couple bucks to support the forum and be ad-free ... but, the potential return of a guitar in exchange for support sounds like a great deal.

    It's a business, 'membership fees' are collected, the same way as advertisers are charged, to defray running costs.
