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.
The Foo Fighters may have ever so slightly underwhelmed, but Dave Grohl found a new way to invigorate guitar music.
Kenneth William served up anarchy and artistry as Canadian punks White Lung released their career best album.
Divisive is an understatement, but putting the hyperbole and the hate to one side, 2014 was The Edge’s comeback year.
The thickest and most visceral grooves of 2014 belong to none other than Chris Bishop of Crobot.
It might not have been the grand finale some were expecting, but 2014 saw one of the greatest guitarists wave goodbye to the most legendary of bands.
