Is there going to be a 2012 contest? And will it be open to people not in the US?

So what's stemming the flow of kit builds? There's so many examples of people on this BBS saying that they've built a kit and they love it. Have we grown bored of the current kit offerings? @Wannabe, I like your suggestion/request. I wonder if a 24 fret bolt guitar kit would get things going again.

There would have to be a start and finish date for it. I don't think there really necessarily needs to be any kind of prize, other than an open poll after the year has ended. Some kind of way of documenting when it was started, copy of packing slip perhaps. So no one puts one in they did 5 years ago.
-The project must be started and finished between eg. 01/01/15-12/31/15
-Poll opens/closes on 01/01/2016-01/31/16. Dates are just an example, and changed according to the month/days/year of calendar dates.
-Construction done by the contestant, no outside sourcing. No guitar air brush artist, wood shops, techs or luthiers to be involved in the build.
Turn out for the builds seems to be low, it may increase the amount shown.
