Steel Panther Looking for a Guitarist

Steel Panther guitarist Satchel is inviting the public to audition as the band’s second guitarist.

The band will be collecting audition tapes, and the winner will be awarded Satchel’s autographed Charvel guitar.

The competition sees the band joining forces with Thomann. The guitarist said in an announcement clip (transcribed by UG):

“I’m gonna give away my guitar – this one right here. It’s the new Satchel model. Giving it away – it’s worth… listen, a lot of people, if they got this, they could sell it and probably pay for their house and their retirement.”

To enter the contest, you need to record a video of yourself clocking in at a maximum of 30 seconds and post it via Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, or Twitter with the hashtags #5thPanther and #thomann. The deadline is September 1 at midnight.

Satchel pointed out:

“No longer than 30 seconds or we will burn it. We’ll throw it in the garbage while it’s on fire, and then we’ll douse it with gasoline, with actual gasoline, while it’s burning, and that’ll be the end of it. You’ll never see it again. So 30 seconds or less, and show us why we need to hire you.”

Steel Panther has a new album titled “Heavy Metal Rules” coming out on September 27.
