Guitar Idol 4 - Powered by LickLibrary

Another fierce final has ended, and we're happy to announce that the winner of Guitar Idol 4 is the absolutely unbelievable Andre Nieri. While everyone was a world class player, Andre stood out as not only a flawless player and composer, but someone who could mesmerise an audience with charisma as he melted faces, all while maintaining a sense of professionalism and class. Andre takes home a PRS custom 24 and a Marshal stack.

Our two runners up were Cameron Allen and Jack Gardiner, two more frightening talents who took home a PRS guitar each.

Luca Mantovanelli wowed the audience on the day and left with the John Petrucci signature Musicman guitar.

Yiannis Papadopoulos was awarded the Paul Gilbert shredder award, and takes away the Ibanez Fireman

Morgan Reid rocked out hard and left with the Fret King Ventura

Damir Puh took away a full TC electronic pedal board

Michael Tillotson won a set of vintage rotosound pedals

Stay tuned for live performance videos, coming soon!

The Rules

To stand the best chance of winning, compose an original guitar composition that showcases your guitar playing and musical ability to the max! If you don’t have the facilities to do a complete new recording and composition, then you can play over jam tracks or backing tracks: but remember that you will be looked upon much more favourably if your entry is entirely your own work... Guitar Idol 4 is all about discovering original new talent - not someone who can play a perfect cover version!
