Guitar World and Joe Bonamassa have teamed up for a new contest. The grand prize winner will get an Epiphone AJ-220S guitar signed by Bonamassa! The guitar comes in a Vintage Sunburst finish.

Ten first place winners will get Bonamassa's new An Acoustic Evening at The Vienna Opera House DVD and CD. Twenty-five runners-up will win the Vienna double CD.

Bonamassa, a predominantly electric guitar player, was ready for a complete departure from his usual projects. For years, he had been wowing audiences with his flagship acoustic song “Woke Up Dreaming,” which has become an iconic staple of his world tour and a fan favorite.

Building on the popularity of this song, Bonamassa and producer Kevin Shirley set out to design an entirely new and intimate “unplugged” concert experience that they would then bring to seven lucky cities in Europe during summer 2012. They recorded the performance in Vienna — the “City of Music” — at the Vienna Opera House, a culturally iconic venue steeped in history and heritage, making it the perfect backdrop for this unprecedented show.

“To say this was a challenge is an understatement,” Bonamassa said. “To say this was a departure from anything I had ever done before is an even bigger understatement. I can say with certainty that it was the most enjoyable tour I have ever done. On this tour, I really learned the virtues of my singing lessons over the years. Take away those long guitar solos, all that sustain and that big Gibson sound and what is left leaves you no option but to dig deep and sing until you can't sing anymore.”

An Acoustic Evening at The Vienna Opera House is available in Double DVD, Double CD and Blu-ray. All are available in stores March 26 or at jbonamassa.com.
