Gibson® Quest for Perfection Promotion (United States and Canada)

The "Gibson Quest for Perfection" or “Gibson Quest” (the "Promotion") consists regional challenges taking place in ten (10) cities on various dates (each a “Regional Quest”) as listed in Schedule A below. For clarity, there may be multiple Regional Quests per city. Each Contestant may win only once. When entering this Contest, Contestants agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and binding in all respects and cannot be challenged or appealed.

Each Regional Quest begins with clues and a unique Password posted on the Gibson Brands, Inc. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. Follow the clues, remember the unique Password, and be the first person to arrive at the location where the trophy headstock “Gibson Token” is hidden and you could be a winner. There is one (1) prize available to be won in each Regional Quest (“Prize”). For more detailed information see the How to Participate section below.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER PROMOTION OR WIN A PRIZE. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING WITHOUT MAKING A PURCHASE ARE THE SAME AS THE CHANCES OF SOMEONE WHO PURCHASES SOMETHING.

Eligibility: The Promotion is open to all legal residents and physically residing in the United States and the District of Columbia (excluding Puerto Rico, Guam, America Samoa, United States territories, possessions and protectorates, foreign based United States Military installations), and Canada (excluding Quebec) except where prohibited or restricted by law, who are above the age of 18 years old ("Contestant"). Promotion is void where prohibited or restricted by law. Employees of Gibson Brands, Inc. (herein referred to as “Sponsor”) or their immediate families, employees of Gibson Innovations, or anyone whom has won a Gibson sponsored Promotion in the preceding 12 months are not eligible to be entered into the Promotion. Immediate family includes parents, spouse, children, siblings, grandparents, step-parents, step-children, and step-siblings. By participating in the Promotion, Contestants agree to be bound by these Official Promotion Rules, release Sponsor and any affiliates against all claims, injuries, or damage arising out of any participation in these Promotion and redemption of the prize, and acknowledge compliance with these Official Promotion Rules. Previous Regional Quest Winners are NOT ELIGIBILE to participate in any other Regional Quest and will be disqualified.

Entry Period: Each Regional Quest begins no earlier than 12:00 PM local time and ends no later than 5:00 PM local time on the specific dates outlined on Schedule A (each a “Regional Quest Promotion Period”).

How to Participate: Each Regional Quest listed in Schedule A will begin no earlier than the Earliest Quest Start Time as defined on Schedule A, when the first clue needed to find the specific location of the Gibson Token (“Token Location”) is posted on the Gibson Brands, Inc. Facebook/Twitter/Instagram pages (www.facebook.com/gibson, www.twitter.com/gibsonguitar, www.instagram.com/gibsonguitar). There will be a hashtag for each Regional Quest indicating that city as defined on Schedule A. Up to three (3) additional clues will be posted each hour after the first clue and no later than one (1) hour prior to the Latest Quest End Time listed on Schedule A. Follow the clues with the designated hashtag until you recognize the Token Location. Once you recognize the Token Location, physically go to the Token Location, touch the Gibson Token and be the first to tell the member of Gibson staff at the Token Location (“Gibson Representative”) the Password that you learned from the clues. Each Regional Quest will have its own separate and unique Password that will be shared in each Regional Quest’s Social Media clues. The first person successfully complete the Regional Quest will be designated as the “Potential Prize Winner” for that Regional Quest. Each Regional Quest will end when a Potential Prize Winner has been confirmed the Winner as described in section 6 below, or one (1) hour after the 4th clue is posted, whichever comes first.

Potential Prize Winners will be required to provide proof of eligibility in the form of a valid driver’s license or federally issued photo ID and must execute a Declaration and Publicity Release in order to be declared the Winner of a Regional Quest.

In the event of a tie, Sponsor reserves the right to conduct a random draw from amongst eligible tied Contestants. Such draw will be conducted by the Gibson Representative. The Gibson Representative will collect the names, addresses and dates of birth of each Contestant in the tie and select one (1) name from the tie group who will be the Potential Prize Winner. Sponsor reserves the right to not designate a Potential Prize Winner if, in its sole discretion, there is not an eligible Contestant.

Winner must pick up the Prize from the Gibson Brands, Inc. Entertainment Relations Office located within the city of the Regional Quest within one (1) week of the Regional Quest.
