Mechanicsburg, PA September 8, 2011 - The Perfect 5th Musical Arts Center (P5), a new music school located on the Carlisle Pike in Mechanicsburg, is holding two contests this month. They are both meant to bring attention to the center's grand opening at the end of the month, which will be highlighted by the Steve Vai Master Class at the Whitaker Center (9/25).
Anyone can enter the Perfect 5th DiMarzio Pickup Contest by simply signing up for the P5 email list through the website at ThePerfect5th.com. Individuals can get a second chance at winning by "liking" the school's Facebook page - Facebook.com/ThePerfect5th. This must be done by Sept. 18th at 11:59pm. Winners will be announced on Sept. 20th. Full contest details are on The Perfect 5th website.
Guitarists are very familiar with the DiMarzio brand. The company is best known for its revolutionary direct-replacement electric guitar pickups, of which millions have been sold around the world. For this contest, DiMarzio has graciously supplied several of their Steve Vai Signature items:
- Grand Prize (2 winners) - Steve Vai Signature Evolution® pickups ($230 value)
- 1st Prize - Steve Vai Signature The Breed™ pickups ($218 value)
- 2nd Prize (2 winners) - Steve Vai Signature Guitar Cable ($125 value)
- 3rd Prize (2 winners) - Steve Vai Leather ClipLock® ($105 value)
Both Steve Vai and The Perfect 5th's director, Eric Wirsing, are endorsed by DiMarzio. Larry DiMarzio himself contacted Eric as soon as he heard about the school and the master class and offered the above items for this contest. It's also interesting to note that the photo used on the event poster (with Steve sitting in the red chair) was taken by Larry DiMarzio. You can read more about Larry and the company he founded on their Facebook page and at DiMarzio.com.
