Thank you for your interest in the Bookmans ESP Giveaway. Our winner will be announced on January 27, 2016.

When Bookmans wanted to add a new line of electric guitars to our vast array of instruments for sale, we looked for a brand that fulfills the needs of our vast array of customers. We need guitars for the metal player, the new hippy blues guy, the three chords and a pop song gal, the future rock star, the jazz girl, the “my wife won’t let me buy a sports car” guy and, of course, the seasoned performer. We want instruments with classic good looks as well as plenty of cutting edge design and the latest tech. We have “Made in the U.S.A.” and imports to fit any budget. Most of all, we want reliable guitars that play great and sound fantastic. We chose ESP Guitars. We like them so much we think you should have one. ESP agrees and so together we offer you a chance to win one in our ESP Giveaway.

Win a Guitar in the Bookmans ESP Giveaway

ESP Giveaway FAQ:

How do I enter to win?
Take a selfie with any of our ESP guitars and Tweet, Facebook or Instagram your photo using the hashtags #ESPgiveaway plus #Bookmans(location) during the promotion period. The promotion period is from January 12 through 20, 2016.
For example: If you are at Bookmans Grant in Tucson, you would use #ESPgiveaway and #BookmansGrant when you post your photo.

Can I enter if I don’t have a Twitter, Facebook or Instagram account?
Sure, ask your grandma if you can use her account. You’ll quickly realize that even your grandma has a Facebook account. The ESP Giveaway requires the use of one of the platforms listed. All three of these platforms provide free accounts that you can enjoy on your desktop, tablet or smart phone. C’mon, it’ll be fun!

How many times can I enter?
You may enter one selfie per Bookmans Entertainment Exchange location. We have six entertainment exchanges, so that’s six entries.

Which ESP guitar?
The ESP Giveaway winner snags a brand new EC-256 Lemon Drop electric model with ESP’s emphasis on quality and craftsmanship. ESP has been making guitars since 1975 and has plenty of guitar and bass models. However, we’re just giving away the one. Check out the photo in the poster. It’s gorgeous.

If I win, how do I claim the guitar?
We will contact you via the platform you submitted your entry. You will have 2 weeks to get back to us. Once we connect, you can pick up the guitar at the Bookmans of your choosing.
