Use this thread to nominate your choice for Guitar of The Month picture. Post the picture in this thread.

The nominations will be  according to the following rules:

1. If a member's Picture (or  similar picture) has been GOTM previously, it can not be GOTM again

2. If a member has had a GOTM in the last 3 months, another picture from that member can't be nominated again.

3. Nominations must be pictures of Larrivee made instruments (guitars, ukes, mandos, etc) owned by a member and posted by members on this forum. Pictures including other makes disqualifies the picture.

4. Nominations will be in a sticky thread in the Pictures section started by one of the mods each month. By about the 20th of the month a Vote thread will be started (each month) so that members can pick the next GOTM from the nominations.

5. Nominations will be closed each month by a mod after 6 nominations have been received.

6. A collage of the same instrument is acceptable

7. Only one nomination per person please. Each picture must have at least one Larrivee guitar.

8. This thread is about nominating the GOTM. if you wish to post a bunch of pictures of your guitar, better to start your own thread [in Pictures].

9. A member may nominate his/her own guitar, or an instrument belonging to another member.

just shut it down now Andrew, that's just TOOO Precious for anyone else to even consider competing with.

 well unless I take one of mine outside and shove it in the snowbank and put some fake plastic trees around it...( as if)

 but really?

 that picture should be on a National Geographic cover or something.

Beauty of a Uke for sure. We all have different tastes and no offence to Steve as I think I might be i the minority - but I dont like the pic at all. Wrong season, (for most of us) overly staged...... sorry being honest

No offense to Steve, and it is a beautiful uke, but the staging is a problem....
Uke - beautiful
Pineapples - inviting and delicious
Sago palm - poisonous, unfriendly plant. We had two of them and they were a b!tch to get rid of.

I hope nobody asks the question about why are folks losing interest in the GOTM anymore.

so where did the picture go?
 oh well, thanks for the brief look.

nobody complained when I staged my Goldtop with the airstream trailer, in fact they put it  on the Larrivee FB page titled "Heavy metal".

to some degree, I stage all my shots and have had more than my share of GOTM pics.

oh well, can't please 'em all.....

What’s wrong with staging a photo?  Isn’t that what photography is about?  I loved that uke pic!  Let’s have fun, guys....not everything needs to be so serious.

Jesus I did not intend to offend. Might be time I packer in! Way too serious for me folks!!!!!!!! Last thing I ever wanted was to impede someone from participating, I only posted in response to the suggestion the photo was a slam-dunk - I just didn't feel it was - we all are entitled to an opinion and vote.

Agreed but at least to me they didn't look staged, Its just my opinion FFS. Some don't like photos without Larrivee Headstocks I remember being articulated before. Gonna take my Uke-Pic and go home..................

Put a new pic with no sago palms and I would consider it for my vote.
Too many painful associations with sago palms.

First I like Kevins guitars pix.Next I liked Steve's pix also.Last Every pix that the GOTM has shown has had some sort of stagging with and without plants.I understand not liking some plants I personnally  don't like poison ivy or oak but its just a pix.There have been some pix that I've burned due to my image was in them that I never wanted anyone to ever see.

All of a sudden we seem to have gotten testy with one another.  The GOTM has evolved from the days when a photo was just chosen by an administrator to where it is today with nominations and member voting each month.  It has never really gotten that much attention and last month there were only a dozen votes.  The same winners keep coming up every few months because of the lack of participation.  Is the G.O.T.M  D.O.A. ?  I don't know.  I hope not.
