Visitors on the day of the event were given the opportunity to enter a raffle, where one lucky winner got the chance to walk away with the sleek and aggressive Godin Redline 3 Trans Amber Flame MN electric guitar. Godin Representative Terry Swanson was on hand with some of the West L.A. Music staff to present the winner with a guitar from Godin’s new metal-minded Redline series. It features 2 active EMG humbuckers, Floyd Rose tremolo bridge, flame top, maple fingerboard and Godin’s renowned tone and craftsmanship.

The young winner from Bakersfield, CA, Coyde Perry, was thrilled at the sight of this brand new axe and couldn’t wait for his first test drive.
