Gojira are coming out with a new album, Magma, next month. The hype is here – and the hype is real. In fact, our sister site for metal musicians, Gear Gods, is so hyped that they’re gonna do something crazy, something monstrously huge – they’re gonna give away some Gojira gear!
One lucky winner is going to take home a complete rig – a Jackson X Series Signature Christian Andreu Rhoads RRXT (signed on the backplate by Christian himself!) and an EVH 5150III 15W LBX Head, which is a lunchbox version of one of the most popular amps in modern metal.
The guitar is in the classic Rhoads shape with some features requested by Christian Andreu himself, like a one-piece maple neck-through reinforced with graphite, a compound radius, a single humbucker and volume knob, and a cool little monster design. The amp has two channels — the Blue and Red channels from the original 5150III — and at 15 watts it’s like a Variac’d version of the 50 or 100 watt heads for maximum tone at bedroom volume.
To read the full contest rules and enter, head over to Gear Gods. The winner will be chosen on June 17 — the same day Magma is released! — and notified by e-mail. It’s that simple. Seems like a pretty small amount of work for the potential payoff, right?
While you’re waiting, you might as well pre-order the album – that way, even if you don’t win the guitar, you’ve still got a spectacular new album to listen to.
