Free Fender Guitars at NAB & RTNDA 2009 (Updated w/5th Guitar)



UPDATE: We have decided to give away a FIFTH Fender “Road-Worn” Guitar!  To register for this on-line drawing, simply leave a comment below.

As we prep for our annual pilgrimage to Vegas for the RTNDA and NAB conventions, we thought we’d go ahead and let the secret out: Stephen Arnold Music is giving away, not just one, not two, but FOUR Fender Road Worn guitars this year!

Stop by our NAB Booth (SL10211) and register to win one of these battle-scarred beauties: a classic blonde Telecaster, a tobacco sunburst Stratocaster and more. We’ll be giving away a Fender guitar each day of the NAB convention (Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday), and another at the RTNDA convention (you can register for the latter at RTNDA’s main registration area). The drawings for NAB will be held each day at our booth at 3pm.  The RTNDA giveaway will be during Tuesday’s Happy Hour Cocktail Party on the Exhibit Floor from 3:30pm to 5:00pm.

So be sure to stop by our NAB booth and register.  You’re gonna love these guitars!

Please see Rules & Eligibility.

    the new indie music is killer! great job!

  2. Joe says:

    Hey Ronnie, thanks for the comment.

  3. Eric says:

    Oh man, I would love to win this and finally learn the guitar. My violin teacher would be proud! (Or roll over in his grave.) 😀

  4. Arthur says:

    Thanks Eric…Good luck on winning the guitar…

  5. Seth says:

    This is cool.. I’d love to win one.

  6. Don says:

    I used to own a Telecaster, in a galaxy far, far away, or about 30 yrs ago. Would love to have another one. Nice studio picture at the top of page.

  7. Steve McEvoy says:

    I would be interested in hearing more about your music package but I will not be at NAB!
    Sure would be good to get that guitar!

  8. James says:

    Finally a chance for some serious strings.

  9. Kirk Pennak says:

    This is a unique way to get someone to respond to a blog… but it worked on me. 😉

  10. David A Hollis says:

    Great ax for my new job once they lay off eveybody

    • Stephen says:

      yeah- well, after playing – these are very cool guitars, so i’m hoping i win one back by leaving a comment on my own blog site

  11. Ben Ralph says:

    Steve, Do I need to go into my studio to make sure all my guitars are still there?

  12. Scott Blum says:


    Great library of stuff. I would have checked out your music even without the guitar opportunity, but that sure would be nice to win.

    I would become the hero of my thirteen year old son, in stead of the old guy who makes him mow the yard. . . .

    Pick me please. My lawn will thank you.

    • Stephen says:

      mowing is good because once he has the guitar- he will need an amp.. i’m hoping it’s riding mower so he can play while he works
      good luck. sa

  16. Jeff Pitner says:

    Thanks for the chance, friends!

  17. BenZ says:

    Played acoustic for years, never had an electric, especially one as awesome as this! As age creeps in and carpal tunnel sets in, the acoustic get harder and harder to play. I’ve given up over the years, but would love to rekindle the passion for playing with a guitar like this.

  18. basset says:

    can’t get to Vegas but I like the black one

  19. Marc Loftus says:

    Great promotion! Any of the 5 would be a dream! I’ll be in Vegas and will definitely stop by to say hi Stephen.

  20. John Ralph says:

    C’mon graduation present.

  21. Your music has put our graphics over the top. Thanks for everything.

  22. Shawn says:

    Hey Stephen,

    I will definitely stop by the booth on Monday but didn’t want to miss my chance to win one of these very cool guitars. My NAB will be restricted to just one day this year.

    See you next week!


    • Stephen says:

      shawn- no worries – hey – when u stop by, leave 3 cards- i’ll have em drop one in each day- + the on line – odds just went up 300% right!! good luck

  23. Greg @ FLN says:

    Thanks for the chance to win this sucker even though I won’t be at NAB! As usual a fantastic giveaway from the Stephen Arnold team!

  24. Jim Davidson says:

    Great idea Stephen – wish I could join you at the show. I would like for my son (The JeanMarie, Miami, Florida) to own one of your guitars!


  25. Greetings from Amsterdam, the Netherlands!

  26. Brian Ligon says:

    Sorry I won’t be at NAB, but I’d love to win one of these beautiful guitars… not to mention sample what new tunes y’all have coming our way!


  27. Joe R. says:

    SA (News) music ROCKS!!

  28. Mike Smith says:

    My son’s beginner’s model Stratocaster is gathering dust. Maybe one of these will inspire him to use those lessons I paid for.

  29. Rob Madeo says:

    Those guitars are awesome. I think that’s just what I need to finally be taken seriously as a musician 😉

  30. Curtis Neal says:

    Long Live Texas BBQ!

  31. Rebecca says:

    Thanks for the chance to win a cool guitar!


  32. Barry Rahmy says:

    What a terrific blog! Great writing, nice visuals, really first-rate, one of teh best I’ve seen yet. Say, you mean I can win a guitar, too, just for leaving a comment? Bonus!

  33. Gregory Larspn says:

    I am a Senior Producer for Starz entertainment. I won’t be at the convention (Promax instead.) I would love to be entered to win one of your guitars. Thanks. Greg

  34. Alan says:

    Those sure are some sweet axes! Hope I can win one….

  35. Kyle says:

    You guys rock and thanks for the chance to win a sweet guitar!

  36. John Fawcett says:

    Been broadcasting your music for seven years nows.
    Still love it!

  37. Larry R says:

    Will miss jamming with you this year, Stephen, but would be honored to inherit one of your road-worn axes.

    Hope you guys have a great Promax.


  38. Dave Muscari says:

    I’m no Scott McCloud, that’s a well known fact — however, I would certainly love to be on the receiving end of one of these guitars.

    Good luck at the conferences. Joe, please keep expenses within an acceptable range this year.

  39. Dutch says:

    Thanks for the chance to win a Fender. Wish I could join you at NAB.

  40. The Vault is the best – topped only by the companies customer service

  41. Alex Trocker says:

    Hey Stephen, thanks for the giveaway. If I win can you throw some BBQ in the case? I’ll buy you all some as well, we can all celebrate together!

  42. I can play E7#9 all day long, ala jimi….hmmmmmmmmm 😉

    You guys are strat-tastic!

  43. Fred says:

    In this order I love God, my wife and kids, my dogs and Fender, beer.

    Hope to have these after the drawing.

    • Stephen says:

      hey fred,
      just fyi- several of these “road worn” guitars look like your kids may have dropped them, then your dog may have chewed on them, and then you spilled some beer while you were jammin. 4 outta 6 ain’t bad.


  44. Tom Benson says:

    hopefully will get there…love the axes

  45. Sean says:

    Have always admired your work, keep it up!

  46. Leslie says:

    Me, me, me, PICK ME!!!! (please?)

  47. What a great idea! Thanks for the opportunity.

  48. Allan Snyder says:

    One of those would be a great birthday gift for my son. Sign me up!

  49. Could my son-in-law finally think I’m cool?

    • Stephen says:

      Hey Steve
      hmmm… that’s tough one. but, chances are, if you turn it up real loud – he’ll be deceived into thinking you’re cool.

      good luck

  50. Addie Ferber says:

    Cool giveaway! xFingersCrossedx

  51. Dave says:

    I KNOW you guys want me to win one of those guitars… I deserve it!

  52. Dave McCoy says:

    Ok, this would get me off my butt and into real lessons…

  53. Kirk V says:

    Yes it is true, my loyalty can be bought for the chance at winning a cool guitar. Please take pity on my cheap, capitalist soul…

  54. You Guys are the best thing in the world….right up there with Cheeze Whiz!!!! Keep on Jammin and creating!

  55. Stan says:

    Great guitars, an old fender, like an old gibson is much better than the new stuff.

    The trick is the electronics, they usually hold up as long as you don’t imitate your favorite bands of days gone by and jump on them (as we did with the old Fender Mustang….rest it’s soul)

  56. Jeff says:

    I’d learn to play guitar if I won that old boy!

  57. David Magee says:

    Well I have been wanting to get one of those bad boys. And I love and use your music selection every week. People around Redding,Ca seem to love the impact your music has with my promotional material.

    Keep up the SOLID work.
    David Magee

    P.S. They have the quickest turn around time, much needed in my line of work. KRCR NEWS CHANNEL 7

  58. Thanks for the opportunity! I have a couple of acoustic guitars and a banjo, and would love to adda fender to the collection,

  59. Michael says:

    Can a guitar be *censored* ? If the answer is yes, you have 5 I’d like to buy a drink…

  60. Jimmy says:

    I have a 1960 Strat and one of these would make good company for it!

  61. kyle says:

    I’ve always wanted a telecaster… Can I just like have it?

  62. Chuck Ellis says:

    Sounds good to me. Hope I win! 😀

  63. Patrick Young says:

    One of those things is not like the other things, one of those things just doesn’t belong, can you guess which thing is not like the other things, before I finish my song?

    Did you guess which thing is not like the other thing, did you guess which one with all your might?
    If you guessed A SUITE WITH A WINDOW was not like any other suite, you know what, my friends, you would be right!

    Oh wait, was I supposed to be looking at GUITARS? Well whaddya know…
    One of those things is not like the others…

    (nice Tele… me like Tele… me like to win Tele!)

    Too silly to win, I’m sure, but wishing you the best at your upcoming road shows!

  64. Shelly says:

    I had an electric guitar when I was a kid. My cousin tried to teach me to play, but when I play the song he taught me for my Mom, she ditched him and the guitar. The song? “Cocaine”
    Hey, I was 13…I didn’t know what it meant. Now…I haven’t picked up a guitar since and my son’s about to be off to college and I need something to do at night. I think being a rock n roll guitar hero is a good thing for a 40ish TV Mom to do, don’t you?

  65. Pete Nikiel says:

    Did Stephen personally wear out those guitars on the road?

  66. Ron says:

    Gotta have some road worn gear to go with my road worn hands. I can write the Stephen Arnold jingle with it.

    And when will we see the Olson guitar giveaway?

  67. Dennis Kellogg says:

    My sons would be fighting for this — not sure they would win though!

  68. Chip Miller says:

    This is such a wonderful idea – giving hope to those financially-strapped musicians out there. Congrats to Stephen Arnold Music on a great and generous gesture. Here’s wishing myself and all the other musicians out there, lotsa luck winning one of these beauties. Peace, Chip Miller

  69. Wow, would I like to win one of these as a gift to my husband. He gave up four years of his music career to nurse me back to health after I was struck by a car crossing the street. He wants so badly to return to his music but we cannot afford a guitar for him (he sold his to pay for my medical bills). Thank you for this opportunity.

  70. Andy Glen says:

    Thanks to you guys at Stephen Arnold Music for this opportunity …. boy I’d love to win one of these. I hope this generous promotion works for you… and me!

  71. chris stifel says:

    Talk about getting my attention. One of the most significant and iconic creations ever wrought from the hands of man is the Fender Stratocaster. Banged, Beaten and soaked in sweat from hundreds of gigs in the dingiest of blues joints around the world. Its a possession that mystifies and inspires to this day. I am in a freaking trance looking at those babies.
    Just pick up that damn guitar and play son!
    Great website. Great stock music. Great promotion. Thank you for this opportunity.

  72. Chris Mollere says:

    Have a great time at the conventions and best of wishes in all y’all do!


  73. Dave Connor says:

    Hey Stephen & Joe-

    Cool way to generate some buzz! Speaking of “buzz”, I’ll see you guys at the bar!

  74. Gary says:

    Everybody seems to be ‘singin’ the blues’ in the news biz these days. With one of these Fenders, I’ll be playing to the sunny side of things! Thanks and good luck to all.

  75. Roger Smith says:

    I’d love to win, maybe I could use it to play along with some of your tracks!

  76. Todd says:

    Stephen Arnold Rocks! Thanks for this opportunity and chance to hit the road with a Fender!

  77. Thanks in advance for the Strat! It will go well with my Tele. Sorry won’t be stopping by the booth this year, maybe 2010.

  78. Mitch Peyser says:

    Those guitars look great.

  79. Jerry Copeland says:

    The Economy will improve in 2010! I will be there next year…Guitar would hold me over for a year!

  80. Just because I’m listing that loosers website don’t mean *censored* man. I’m still around and thats the deal. Cool? I got an audition comming up in a while cause I ain’t got no job and I sold my Martin. My wife done left my ass and the only way I’m gonna make some jack is with an Ax man… Cool? I dig that Telecaster… the Strats ain’t my gig no mo. Cool? Don’t forget I’m left handed. Cool?


  81. urs says:

    the road worns are amazing. and i’m afraid that my local guitar store is going to start banning me from coming in and jamming with them any more.

    i’m a student. with no money to buy one.

    it looks like demoing it a guitar center every week will be the closest i get to owning this fine equipment.


  82. You guys still rock after all these years! Keep it rolling…

  83. Oh man — I could finally replace my Fender ax that had to be sold for cash after my high school garage band days. Sign me up!

  84. Dan Farley says:

    Another great giveaway from the good folks at Stephen Arnold Music!

  85. Matt says:

    any chance the 5th is the butterscotch tele? 🙂

    • Stephen says:

      sorry- the butterscotch #2 to go away. the 5th- on line will be a rosewood neck strat
      i pushed for all teles – but was out voted
      oh well


  86. Gerry says:

    There is no AX like an old AX, Wow what a great promotional idea.
    I want one, I want one. A fender Jag is the hotest ever invented. YUM!
    Gerry K

    (good job)

  87. Chris Wolf says:

    count me in! great contest..great music..

  88. The design made them instant classics let alone the beautiful noise they put out!

  89. Dondi says:

    Music Super in need of a Fender bender !

  90. Ralph says:

    I wish I could attend Promax this year, Stephen, but budgets are tight, tight, tight! You are one talented dude!

  91. Dean Edwards says:

    Best music, greatest PEOPLE in the BIZZZ!!

  92. Count me in! My brother gave away my Gibson and I’m in the market for that retro single-coil Fender sound. Come on lucky bald spot!! 😉

  93. Tony S says:

    oh oh…me me…i like to win.

  94. Jerry Bever says:

    Hope you have a great convention this year. Pleased we’re a client! Good luck and great idea for a contest!

  95. Rick Owens says:

    If I win one of these guitars, I’ll write you guys your very own theme song, record it with the guitar I win, and then send it to you for publicity purposes!!

    I would love to have one!

  96. Todd says:

    Oh that would be nice. I think I’d tune it down to C.

  97. Ok Joe! You know an old hippy gal from Texas would LOVE to win! 🙂 I would also love to go to NAB, but I think I have a better chance of winning the lottery! hahaha Talk to you soon…. Karen

  98. Maurice Ferkranus says:

    nice idea! thanks for this opportunity.

  99. David Bowen says:

    I GOTTA have one of those beautiful old Quack Fenders!
    Please, I’ll buy new music … oooops! just did.
    Well, I am just so impressesd that anybody would do anything so cool!

  100. Jim Turpin says:

    Just had the debate with someone yesterday, Gibson vs. Fender vs. Rickenbacker. Pick me and Fender will be, forever, the supreme guitar being!

  101. chris l says:

    Great Library..wish I could register in person

  102. Don says:

    Sweet Strats. Good luck at NAB next wk.

  103. Chris Huston says:

    I’ve been trying to talk myself into buying a Telecaster for about five years. Haven’t been able to bring myself to do it. Love the Gibson-like throaty sound.

    In the meantime…love our music package. I’ve been listening to it every day for nearly three years, and it still knocks me out.

    Keep up the good work in tight times.

  104. Jimmy says:

    My old Strat (1960’s) has just about given up the ghost and I have a lot playing left to do. I hope you pick me!

  105. Kathy says:

    Don’t really care for blogs, but this has changed my mind. Anything for a chance to win. Kathy

  106. Didn’t the telecaster in the middle belong to Buck Owens at one time!

    Help….. I need to get plugged in and give my Martin a rest!

    Keep up the good work…. you guys have the best package in the business. Sorry I won’t make it to NAB .. but I think my wife is going to let me go out to the Stagecoach Festival in California next weekend to witness the reunion of all the original members of POCO!


  107. Richard says:

    Thanks for the chance to win one of these… the Tele in particular would be a dream come true!

  108. B.J. says:

    is this where I go to register for my free guitar, uhm, I mean chance to win one….? I agree, though, giving away the only Telecaster in the house seems wrong somehow. Those are great guitars.
    B. “once a customer always a customer. J.

  109. Stephen and Joe,

    Since I may be one of the only GM’s who keeps his guitars and amps in his office and has the Indie Rock Music package, a road worn Fender should natuarally reside in Denver. Check out for our streaming where you can hear your package in action. M-F 5-9am; M-F 11am-12nn and M-F 7-8pm.


  110. Oh, man, Fender is the best!

  111. God, would I love to give this to my son, when he returns from Afghanistan. He was deployed there last year, and is expected home in June. Good luck to me. Thanx for this opportunity. George

  112. Guitar L says:

    This would look great on my guitar wall. Thanks for the opportunity.

  113. David Becker says:

    I need this!

  114. You guys are the best!

  115. Gail says:

    Stephen, Joe, Clay and all,
    You all are so clever! Just pull my name out, take the entire office on a roadtrip to New Orleans for Jazz Fest, bring the guitar, take it jamming on Frenchmen St., and see our sunflowers! Sorry I won’t be in LV this year. Thanks for staying in touch – Gail

  116. B Jones says:

    You guys rock!
    Now gimme guitar. 🙂

  117. Karl R says:

    What a great idea! Love the indie music, by the way.

  118. Tulsa Jack says:

    As they say in Wichita Falls, “Oooh-la-la.”

  119. Kati Donaghy says:

    Hey Gang!

    Fingers crossed! Pull out my name…pretty please;)
    Best Wishes-Kate Donaghy

  121. Jesus Garcia says:

    Best Wishes


  122. Scott Blum says:

    The Mowing Dad here,

    As an old DJ, radio salesman, I don’t normally do these contest things but hey, I hate mowing my lawn. Winning this for my son would insure that my grass will look like Augusta.

    Still working on that riding mower/Marshall amp combo.

  126. KB says:

    Great contesting idea! Would love to attend but…my budget is no more…

  127. Wish I could be there in Vegas, but alas, going to NAB on the company’s dime are long gone, and I can’t afford to go on my salary.
    That guitar would soooo sweet!

  128. Ray Lambiase says:

    They look good even to an old folkie like me! best of luck in Vegas.

  129. Jerry Bever says:

    With the way the economy is going, I may have to turn to playing guitar to make a living!

  130. Paul Turner says:


    Would be really cool to win (since I can’t afford one ;-(

  131. Kirk Herzbrun says:

    I love the Road Worn Series. This is exactly why Fender guitars are the coolest thing on the planet!

  132. Arthur, sorry. Had trouble sending you those pennies. The postage was a killer! Have fun in Vegas!

  133. Bill Reid says:

    A chance for a real Road Warrior is Way too cool to pass up. Seems most posts are after the Tele (my first choice too), but a cherry neck Strat works for me. You guys Rock!

  134. Julie says:

    You boys ROCK! Great giveaway…maybe all those hours of playing Guitar hero will pay off. LOL

  135. I want to be a rock star, please help.

  136. Mark Limbach says:

    I would love to win one of those guitars! Maybe then my son could actually use his Rock Bank skills.

  137. Mark Limbach says:

    I actually meant Guitar Hero….I must be getting old.

  138. Derreck Whitlatch says:

    What a cool thing you guys are doing.
    Would love to get a hold of one!

  139. jason says:

    hey awsome fenders
    also great idea for contest

  140. Kal Socolof says:

    If music be the food of love, play on!

  141. Glenn Vasko says:

    Wow, what a great promotion! You gotta love Strats and Teles!

    You got my attention.

    If I win the Tele (I’ll settle for a Strat) I will tell our Music Director about you guys, deal? 🙂

    Hope you guys enjoy NAB!

  142. Mark Phillips says:

    Would love to use one of these on the music for my latest show at A&E. Thanks for the opportunity.

  143. Paul Rourke says:

    I like the Blondie!

  144. Dave says:

    I’ve always wanted a real Tele.

  145. cibo says:

    My 16 yr old son would stop whining about getting stuck with his older brother’s Fender acoustic beginner’s guitar. He’d have to battle me for time on one of these.

  146. Jerry Bever says:

    To Jimmy: If that old ’60’s strat is giving you too much trouble, I’d be glad to take it off your hands for you!

  147. Tom Hill says:

    Count me in on the contest… although I feel that spiritually/aesthetically one should really have to “wear in” your own axe…

    But I won’t complain!

  148. Please enter me in the Fender give away. I’m a Texan stuck up here in Washington D.C. , they don’t understand Texas blues up here.

  149. CJ Hlas says:

    I just had my amp repaired but am without anything adequate to plug into it. The opportunity to win a Fender jumped out at me and, almost always the optimist, I’ll be hopeful for a win.

  150. Old cars or old guitars – just what all us old guys want. Great idea! Thanks.

  151. Congrats on the blog, Stephen & Crew! Best of luck at the shows this year.

  152. timgeraghty says:

    Always loved seeing Stephen and crew at RTNDA. They had great afternoon receptions! Thanks for doing this.

  153. Barry says:

    It was fun to see the guy win the black Strat Monday at your booth. Great of you all to give the guitars away. Maybe I’ll be next.

  154. Dave Bradley says:

    Hooray for road worn ( and rode hard..) Engineers, musicians and oh yea… too! Old age and tretchery will always overcome youth and vigor. Is that right??? I can’t remeber so well these days….

  155. Dave Berry says:

    Movie business is booming. See you at the megaplex . . .
    Thanks for the guitar contest.

  156. Excellent samples shown at the NAB conference!

    The Guitar Contest is a great idea!

  157. Jerry Bever says:

    Hope NAB is going well … remember to save a strat for me! Thanks again.

  158. Tim Schroeppel says:

    I’m responding ’cause I really want a Road Worn Strat in the worst way. Cool blog. I just bookmarked it.

  159. David Jewell says:

    YOU GUYS ROCK…so could I if I win.

  160. I have already left a comment….does it help if i leave 2?? 🙂 hahahahah


  161. Cool guitars! Thanks for the opportunity.

  162. Dave Baumann says:

    Stephen…you KNOW I deserve this guitar! Make it so, #1!

    Mine. Mine. Mine.

  164. so if I light it on fire, you won’t notice the difference….cool 😉

  165. Tregg White says:

    I quit playing guitar when I was 10. But a new guitar would sure look good in my office!

  166. Darrel Adams says:

    Cool contest! Thanks for the opportunity and the music.

  167. Guitar please! Thanks!

  168. pat obermeier says:

    ok. ok you wore me down. great way to get me to go to your site…plus to listen to your cool music.

  169. Cool promotional idea to get people “in the tent.”

  170. Jimmy says:

    I played one of the Road Worn guitars the other day in a music store. Wow, what a concept! With the economy (and other factors) these days, I hope Christmas comes early (this week)!


  171. It’s no accident when you go on a Fender bender!

  172. Sorry I had to “ax” plans for NAB/RTNDA this year. I love the “tone” of this promotion. I’m confident there are no “strings” attached so I won’t “fret” that possibility. 🙂

    • Stephen says:

      Steve- we should have had you write the copy!!- and yup – there are 6 strings attached. How’s everything in knoxville?

  173. I’m not in Vegas, although life is good in Orlando. It would be better if I had a Telecaster. Thanks for the chance.

  174. Brian Ross says:

    Okay…you guys got me! Who wouldn’t want to win this guitar?

    And, for the record, I actually play it! So, I’d be honored to have it. 🙂

    Good luck all.

  175. James Tucker says:

    I’ve heard it said by a National TV network that “Stephen Arnold is the best “effin” composer in the world.” Too bad they don’t have a statue for that.

  176. Mark Baumert says:

    Been a Stephen Arnold client for years. Love the music. We use Stravinsky here at NTV and it’s become our signature.

    My only regret about not going to the RTNDA@NAB is this guitar contest and not being eligible. Now that I am eligible by leaving a blog, I am content and well on my way to complete self-actualization.

  177. Ron Scalera says:

  178. JT Cantwell says:
