12 Guitars Official Rules


• Listen Monday-Friday, beginning November 27th in the 9 AM, 2 PM, and 5 PM hours.  At each of those times, a clue will be given about one of the country artists who has autographed one of the prize guitars.  After the clue is read, the 10th caller will be taken at (661) 842-5555 and that caller will be given the opportunity to guess the artist who the clue is about.  If the caller guesses the correct answer, they are the daily winner of one of the 12 autographed guitars.  The contest for the day will be over and begin again the following weekday.  If the caller is incorrect, the contest continues at the reading of the next clue.  After the 5 PM clue, if the first guess is incorrect, subsequent callers will be taken until there is a winner for the day.

• The first 11 guitar winners will be qualified through this method.

• The correct answer to the daily question does not entitle the daily winner to receive the autographed guitar from that specific artist.  Winners will receive their autographed guitars at the 12 Guitars of Christmas event and will be subject to the rules of the Final Drawing as outlined below.

• All daily guitar winners must be present on Thursday, December 14th, at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace. between 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM on 2800 Buck Owens Blvd, Bakersfield.

• Listeners who did not qualify during the 11 days of contesting prior to the event will have the opportunity to register on location between 5:00 PM – 7:30 PM to be the twelfth and final guitar qualifier.  Entries will close at 7:30 PM and the name of the final qualifier will be drawn on location, and qualifier must be present to participate in the final drawing.

• Should any of the 11 qualifiers not be present to win, the total will be brought to 12 by additional drawings from listeners in attendance who must be present.

• A “picking order” will be determined by random draw on location between all 12 qualifiers.

• The first drawing participant will have their choice of any of the 12 sealed boxes or envelopes which will remain sealed until the drawing is complete.

• The second drawing participant can choose to pick their own box or take the box the first participant selected (“a steal”). Should a box be “stolen”, the participant whose box was stolen can pick a new box or “steal” from any contestant other than the person who just selected their box.

• Any box cannot be stolen more than two times.

• Once all 12 qualifiers have been selected and the selections are final, radio station personnel will prompt each drawing participant to open their box and reveal their guitar.
