Needle In The Hay

Prize Reveal: Fender promises Player Series guitar to Needle In The Hay winner

The music wizards over at Fender are gifting one lucky NITH winner with their most versatile, sleek, and coveted guitars.   

Some pairings feel as though they were written in the stars. From bacon and eggs, to salt and pepper, to Simon and Garfunkel. Then, in what is perhaps the most fruitful pairing, there’s the musician and their instruments.

The folks over at Fender know this kinship well, which is why they’ve spent years delivering a range of premium instruments for musicians to truly fulfil their dreams. It’s why Fender’s partnership for this year’s Needle In The Hay is another match made in heaven.

Each year, entrants submit their tunes to Australia’s largest independent music competition, so it stands to reason that the lucky winner is met with the world-renowned guitars of Fender.

2024 NITH hopefuls are poised to get just that, with Fender revealing their prize for the first place getter. 

This year, the lucky Needle In The Hay winner will score a Fender Player Stratocaster, the bold and innovative guitar that forms part of their Player Series range.

The Player Series has quickly become Fender’s best-selling series, renowned for its easy playability, max comfort and sleek look. 

The Player Stratocaster, which is what the NITH winner will get their hands on, comes with even more features, especially in its versatility.

The Stratocaster boasts an alder body with gloss finish, a “Modern C”-shaped neck profile and a 9.5″-radius fingerboard. To top it all off, the premium guitar comes equipped with a String-through-body bridge with block steel saddles. 

It’s rare that a budding musician could score such high-quality gear for free, but this year’s Needle In The Hay allows one lucky winner’s dreams to come true.
