These are unprecedented times, and the giveaways are coming thick and fast from the music industry. Now Epiphone is following suit with its new HomeMadeMusic show Epiphone Guitar Giveaway Of The Day.

It will air Monday - Friday at 3.oopm CT and for each episode Gibson Director of Brand Experience Mark Agnesi will pick a new Epiphone guitar and give it away, with no purchase necessary. You can also donate to charity to win a piece of Agnesi's rig.

“We wanted to create a show for GibsonTV that everyone could look forward to watching everyday while we’re all home” says Mark Agnesi. “I’m going to give away a brand-new Epiphone guitar every weekday to one lucky viewer and we are going to raise money for MusiCares through the rig I use. Hopefully, we’ll have some fun while we’re all coming together to fight this virus.”
