Maton - EMD6 Mini Maton Diesel Acoustic Guitar

The Winner of our Mini Maton Giveaway: Fiona Wedenig
When Fiona Wedenig of Gidgegannup received an email saying “Congratulations you are a Winner!” she thought it was just another one of those annoying hoax emails!  In fact her first impulse was just to delete it!  Fortunately she did not...  and a few days later when she checked the email more carefully she could not believe her luck!   

Fiona, who is actually a clarinettist & owns a beautiful Buffet Festival series Bb clarinet, registered for our eNewsletter last year after she came across our website while looking for a Christmas Present for her guitarist partner Han.  She saw that Tommy Emmanuel was doing a Master Class for Concept Music and, knowing Han owned already a Maton M325, thought it would make a great gift.  Coincidentally Fiona & Han were already familiar with the Maton Mini Series guitars and had already been considering buying one as a travel guitar to take with them when visiting friends and family at “home” in Switzerland & Holland.   As the Mini Maton is small enough to go in an overhead locker it has been a very popular travelling guitar.

Fender - USA Stratocaster

“I am humbled, astounded & privileged & can already feel the funk dripping off this baby!!” said winner of the Fender USA Stratocaster Raff McGriff!”.

Raff has been into Concept Music recently ogling one of our Relic Custom Shop guitars however is taking a break from work this summer and said “this will prove a welcome distraction and is a welcome addition to my growing collection!”
Tony took a break from his obvious Mo-Vember commitments to present the guitar to an excited Raff in store last Friday.

Taylor - BT1 Baby Taylor Acoustic Guitar

Congratulations to our newest winner Zoe Hayden from Abbotsford in Victoria who is now the proud owner a brand new Bt1 Baby Taylor acoustic guitar!

Falling in love with the ukulele, like the rest of the world, Zoe turned to Concept Music to make that all important first purchase. Zoe originally from Melbourne, came to Perth to work in Perth’s screen industry. She quickly became connected to Perth’s music scene and met a group of aspiring ukulele enthusiasts also working in the screen industry who came together to form The Ukeladies. The Ukeladies had a passionate but short-lived existence – sadly coming to a halt as Zoe departed for Darwin leaving her much loved group. Though the idea was often flaunted The Ukeladies were never to have their performance debut – though there were even rumours of a potential drop in from the Pigrim Brothers – but unfortunately it was not to be. In Darwin, she again met an enthusiastic group of strummers and enjoyed playing her Kala uke in the tropical surrounds. Here the backpacker call beckoned and Zoe set off for a nine month adventure in South Asia and she said goodbye to her beloved uke, which is reported to be doing well and providing much enjoyment to its new owner.

Within the first month of returning to her hometown Melbourne, she received an email from Graham at Concept Music congratulating on wining a Baby Taylor guitar – well she thought it was Kizmit. After receiving her Baby Taylor a mere few days ago – the two have ne’er been apart. Zoe now looks forward to a new love affair and to extend her skills into the realm of six strings. Don’t miss your chance to Win a Yamaha Silent Guitar in our next giveaway... just like Zoe you can enter just by signing up for our eNewsletter!
