Just Add Power (J+P) announced the company will be giving away three classic red bullseye-designed Kramer ’84 guitars at CEDIA Expo 2019 — Sept. 12-14 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver — as part of J+P’s partnership with Guitars For Vets (G4V). Attendees will have the chance to win a guitar each day of the expo in booth 1817. For each guitar given away, J+P will donate four acoustic guitars — with the winner’s name on them — and a year’s worth of lessons to American veterans.
This is the fourth year J+P has held a guitar giveaway. This year’s prize — the Kramer ’84 — is styled in the image of the original Kramer Baretta of 1984, played by such master shredders as Eddie Van Halen and Mötley Crüe’s Mick Mars. For a chance to win, attendees must visit J+P’s booth to enter and be present during the daily 3 p.m. drawing.
“This is the fourth year we’ve given away guitars at CEDIA to support and raise the visibility of G4V’s important mission,” said Taft Stricklin, sales team manager for J+P. “This year, 12 veterans will receive brand-new guitars. With G4V, vets have described rehab as band camp, where they learn, create, and bond with other vets to make music. Music is a powerful healing tool. We couldn’t be prouder to be a part of helping these deserving heroes.”
Founded in 2007, G4V donates guitars to veterans using the medium of music to help them readjust to life after service and cope with the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder. G4V currently operates more than 80 chapters in 40 states across the U.S. with the assistance of over 200 volunteers nationwide.
During CEDIA, J+P is also rolling out the red carpet with an invitation to party with Dr. Crüe, the premier Mötley Crüe tribute band, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. at the Summit Music House in Denver. Sponsored in partnership with Luxul, attendees can pick up tickets at booth 1817.
