Posted by The Bay Area Crew, May 5, 2013 06:05pm | Post a Comment

In celebration of the in-store performance with Steve Earle on April 17th, we held an enter-to-win contest steve earlefor an LX1 Little Martin and a limited edition test-pressing, both autographed by Mr. Earle himself, at the Amoeba SF store! The LX1 Little Martin is Martin's smallest guitar, but it's big on tone, quality, and versatility. As their website says, it's just perfect for "playing around the house or campfire."

Chosen completly at random from hundreds of entries, we couldn't have picked a more enthusiastic winner. A devoted Steve Earle fan and Amoeba regular, Shauna was overjoyed to win and asked if Mr. Earle would be willing to throw in a guitar lesson as well! 

Thanks to New West Records for setting up this fun contest for us. Buy Steve Earle's latest album The Low Highway on CD, vinyl, or deluxe CD edition.
