Acoustic 'Fip Fok' rockers Coco And The Butterfields have been crowned overall winners of the 2012 Live & Unsigned final.
Live & Unsigned, which took place over a number of months with heats in individual cities and regional finals, is the UK's premier battle of the bands contest, culminating in a UK final at the O2 in London.
Each of the regional finalists have already benefited from receiving a Vintage guitar of their choice, like London's The Fourfits, who chose a Vintage Reissued V100BB.
After beating off competition from literally thousands of other entrants from across the UK, Coco And The Butterfields walk away a fantastic prize package, which includes a £2000 Fret-King Black Label endorsement deal courtesy of worldwide Fret-King distributors John Hornby Skewes & Co. Ltd.
Further information on the Fret-King instruments Coco And The Butterfields choose will be provided in due course.
