The team at Acoustic Guitar is preparing our annual Gear of the Year coverage and we need your help!  Please tell us about your favorite acquisitions of the past 12 months -- the instruments and gear that have made a real difference to your playing, performing, or general sense of well-being.  It could be something big (a new guitar),  something small (a capo, strings, a lesson download), or something in between (a case, a pickup, an amp). Our coverage will appear in the December 2017 issue and we'd love to include your comments.

* 1. Did you acquire a piece of guitar gear during the past 12 months, whether buying something, swapping something, or receiving something as a gift?

* 2. What piece of gear did you get in the last year that you love?

* 3. Why do you love it?

* 4. What's the next thing you need?

* 5. Do we have your permission to edit and publish your answers to the questions above? (Since you are answering this survey anonymously, we won't know who you are and will quote you without attribution.)

* 6. Please check the box that best describes your relationship with Acoustic Guitar Magazine.

* 7. Are you willing to be contacted with follow-up questions?  If so, please provide your email address here.
