Tough call because of the combination of the quality of the photo vs. how cleverly the idea of the theme is handled.

I don't like to nitpick however, BryanP's pic is larger than the contest rule size requirement. (I thought you would say something about it when you put in the voting but you didn't)

It's specifically 640x689

Ha, there!
My inner geek had to go with Turbo's. So what's the story on this one Turbo? Is it a head or what?

From:https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=239136" :smile:

The key to building a low-noise guitar amp is proper grounding with very low resistance between the potentiometers and jacks and the chassis. I have built some guitar amps and rebuilt/restored many others, but this one was built by a good friend of mine from NJ. It's a Carlson Turbo-Pup and I got serial number 2 after a wait of over a year (counting development time and a lot of cajoling on my part to get him into production). Killer amp, and very noise-free thanks to the heavy copper buses connecting all the pots and jacks. Mark is an EE and is VERY meticulous. He knows that mechanical grounds (using nuts to clamp components to the chassis) corrode and fail over time and he wanted to build top-quality amps that pros could use for many years trouble-free. Mission accomplished.

If it's larger than the requirement then I can shrink it to the minimum of the two dimensions. It won't make much of a difference though, but I can if requested by OP.

Thanks for the catch, christina. Per our rules, the picture would have been disqualified. I will make up a new poll for this group.
