Win a Fender Blacktop HH Telecaster with Musicroom and Music Radar

Want to get your hands on a hot-rodded Fender Blacktop HH Telecaster?

Musicroom have teamed up with Music Radar to offer you the chance to win one of these fantastic dual-humbucker Fender guitars, just in time for summer.

The supercharged Blacktop HH Telecaster is the perfect blend of vintage flavour and high-gain power, with its dual over-wound Hot Alnico Humbucker pickups giving players all the drive they could ever need without having to sacrifice on your sound.

WIN this guitar!

It’s a beautiful instrument to look at too, with an alder wood body, maple neck and rosewood fret board that feels great to play whatever your style.

According to Music Radar’s very own Ed Mitchell, the Blacktop HH is the “hot-rodded guitar designed to convert unbelievers to the Fender faith”, and with its impressive flexibility this six-stringer is a beast that can take on all comers, regardless of their style or genre.

From brutal riffs to soaring melodies and screaming, deep-burning blues, the Blacktop can handle anything you could throw at it, so long as you, the player, have the passion to match.

With the 2012 festival season well under-way, now is the perfect time to grab yourself a brand new guitar and blaze your own path through the summer!

All you need to do to win this spectacular guitar is tell us, in less than 200 words, why you should win in a comment below.

We’re looking for passion, commitment and proof of why you deserve this fantastic prize – the more creative your answer, the better.

  • Phil Darling

    I am a child of the 70′s and as such guitar led music has been the foundation of my musical obsession. Since hearing ‘Summer of 69′ it occurred to me that I might also be able to play the guitar and make people tremble with pleasure at the sight of my plectrum – but alas, time and money never aligned to facilitate the purchase.Then what with marriage, two children,and later a dog, I had to put my superstar dreams on hold – but now. The time has come. I think the world is ready for an ageing bald rocker that hasn’t been on Xfactor.

    This is my time….all I need is a guitar.

  • Adam

    When my dad was my age (18) his dad bought him a fender telecaster, second hand, and it turned out the guy that sold him it stole it so the police took it away, my dad never got to own an electric guitar and if i won it i could give him a second chance to learn guitar.

    Because I want it !!!!!!!!

  • Joe Newham

    I think it’d be pretty neat if I won this guitar because while my band is finding its feet and starting to actually make some money on the live circuit we feel that we should really solidify, refine and mature our sound in order to make the biggest impact we can. Switching my duty from bassist to second guitarist (as I plan to do) would open up a whole new musical palette to us, and I can’t think of a more stylish and fitting way to do that than with a blacktop tele. Not to mention that the duality of the guitar’s design is reflected in my tastes – my band plays indie/alternative stuff but I also have a passion for high-gain, proggy metal. Needless to say, this instrument really caught my attention as a marriage of two wonderful approaches to guitar philosophy that I try to reflect in my own output.

  • Craig Alexander Plant

    Fenders are the only guitars I play, I have been a true Fender player all my life. The look and sheer beauty of this guitar is amazing.

    I’ve got a crazy amount of gigs coming up and this bad boy would just do the trick!

    Fender = WIN!

  • Kevbo

    Welp, I’m writing this from a Tijuana jail cell. The guards were kind enough to lend me a 10 year old iPAQ PDA to write this post. They’re telling me that because of the contest rules, they are barred from winning this here beautiful Fender Blacktop. They also tell me that if I win this contest and give them the quitar plus a vintage Fender Reverb autographed by Dick Dale, they would let me go. I’m still looking for an amp contest online but man is this iPAQ slow. Thanks.

    A Single tear dropped form his eye,
    he decided to play to the chord in the sky,
    lord of rock, king of roll take this peice of my mighty soul,
    in exchange for this sweet guitar.

    The fender blacktop shall be mine,
    winning is my ultimate goal,
    Unworthy risen from the streets,
    Dreams of blacktop played to punch drunk beats,

    Listen to this plea of mine, and unite warrior with axe.
    Knight with steed, Moon with sun.

    Place this offering on my strap, I promise, I wont play no rap,
    Power chords and bluesy licks, That is how i will get my kicks.
    so choose this dude and heed my words, cause anyone else is just absurd,

    i really deserve this guitar because i am a guitar lover and i have been waiting this for so long. Fender guitars is my favorite

  • Moz

    Having played in a band for almost a year, anybody would tell you that taking two or more guitars to a gig is essential. However, I myself only own one guitar, I’m in fact having to borrow my brothers which is much better than my own I may add, and worried I’ll have to give it back very, very soon. In the mean time I’ve been looking at the Blacktop series for my 2nd guitar; they’re versatile, well built and look great. If I managed to win it would be absolutely detrimental to me and the band. Thank you.

    I am a drivey-edm-rock-ish music producer and live performer, and I am experimenting with blending different music styles to get the sounds in my head out to people.
    I LOVE Teles, and for few months I was busy building one of my own from parts. I could not afford real Fender parts, so had to use cheaper ones. The neck was damaged, I sent it back, got no response from the shop. I had to resort for an even cheaper loaned neck to keep playing. It’s been 1,5 years since I’ve played my FrankenTele to it’s full (still pretty crappy) potential, and now it just keeps falling apart..
    I need a great sounding guitar to keep experimenting and to keep up with the ears that demand quality sound. This guitar is a pure beauty, and I would love to carefully modify it to my needs and share it’s sonic awesomeness.
    Fingers crossed, and thanks for the opportunity! :))

    As a hip-hop producer, I need to win this guitar to finally draw me away from making repetitive, generic music and push me towards my true calling as a indie rock genius. I need an instrument I can feel connected to, I can feel an affinity with; and a laptop just doesn’t cut it anymore.

    I need this guitar because it will increase my visibility as I play all my dozens of local shows a year… I am still searching for those magical bandmates that will help me destroy the evil music industry and restore peace to the galaxy…

  • T.Eugene

    Because I can.

  • Mohummud Jainoodeen

    Why you should win? or let’s put it that way,WHY I SHOULD WIN? is more appropriate to the fact I need to replace my guitar,simple as that.This question also reflects on the mind of every participants,but alas there is only one winner and THAT’S ME,definetely.
