Post What prize would you give to Paul Gilbert?
Hi everybody, I was thinking to give Paul, in his next show in Rome, a cup or something reminding a guitar with written "Best guitarist of the (fuzz) universe" - PG Fans United , is it too childish?
Do you have suggestions? Please don't treat me bad, I'm sensitive to insults!! :mrgreen:

One of Paul's fans/students gave him a brand new, handmade in Italy (super nice quality) guitar!

He said he liked letters in an interview from ages ago.

This idea was given out a while ago: Everyone was going to chip in like $5-$10 and then some fans were going to buy a cheap guitar and get everyone in the crowd to sign it, and then they were going to give it to Paul as a birthday gift. It was a cool idea.
** A cloth banner signed by everyone in your group (or everyone in the crowd) would be a LOT lighter and eassier to ship back home!

What is a good gift for a musician living in a bunk on a tour bus? Something small but not easy to lose. Like the octopus ring!

I don't have ionternet access right now so I am all out of ideas in my alloted 10 minutes. I may have more later. Great thread, great idea Dewi - let's hear from some more peeps!

I'd give him the following prize:

"biggest disappointment for not reforming Racer X"

An award for amazing instrumental albums, fo sho.


I was thinking the other day about awesome things to give Paul's band. For some reason I thought a gold chain with gold picks on it came to mind for Paul.


No idea why.

Great idea Zae.
I was thinking "silver guitar pick, like the dog tags he wore/gave to Ivan Mihaljevic in 2008"
but silver custom casts are expensive!!!! If you could find a chrome-plated steel guitar pick already made, and get it engraved at a trophy shop, that would be SUPER!

I'd probably give him a copy of Second Heat.
It's an awesome album with tasty shred and maybe he'd be reminded that it would be a good idea to reunite Racer X.

If I don't give him that, I'd think of something else Racer X related to give him.

Thank you for your suggestions guys, I'll go to the trophy shop to ask for info.
I can't afford a "big" gift so it will be a simple thing. The pic is a nice idea and it's not bulky, thank you Jenn!
If anyone wants to take part (without giving money) we can write all your names in a greeting card to give him with the prize!

Here is a reasonably-priced EU/UK-based vendor of silver guitar picks for necklaces: http://www.silverpicks.co.uk/products/showprod/3

(I am not the vendor and have no alliance or ties with them... found them on a quick search. Caveat emptor.)

Paul reads this forum, so if you want it to be a surprise, send PM messages... I'm sure that the people who contributed to this thread can help out just as well in PM! :)

You just made Christmas shopping about 30% easier for me this year.

Dewi : I replied to the email. I sent a link also. :)
(I wish I had the silver... I would make the pick and donate it! I'm seriously thinking about ordering it... will go back to sitting on my hands to avoid buying. :) )
Yeah, deleting the topic would be a fine idea.

Paul's on tour, I doubt he has the time to read these posts. Even if he does have free time I don't think he'd be using it looking here surely?

It would have been nice if the mod had done what they were asked and deleted this thread weeks ago.
I was asked to NOT bump the thread, even though I was going to say something like "too bad we couldn't get this to work out" to keep it seeming a surprise.
As things stand, despite tremendous odds, everything worked out... but it would have been more surprising if this had been deleted!
At least we can delete our own threads on MS & FB...

Thank you Dewi!
Boy did she come through with flying colors...
Poor Dewi had to go to the concert with a bad cold and a massive headache and spent the entire show laying down from sickness... but patience and GRIT / perserverance pays off. Paul got his gift! :) SUCCESS.
All of you who sent ideas for a gift, and messages for Paul's card, THANK YOU. Dewi's computer tried to eat it, but luckily she won that fight too. So Paul got his card as well.

Hopefully she'll return and tell the story, but if not, everything amazingly went according to plan, and plan, and plan, and plan some more...!
