Yamaha Day 2021 saw the spirit of "Two Yamahas - One Passion" put into play with Yamaha Corporation (Yamaha Music), joining the celebrations to mark the 66th birthday of Yamaha Motor Corporation. The collaboration saw Yamaha Music provide a fitting major prize for the consumer competition - a stunning Yamaha RevStar RS702B Electric Guitar.
Hopeful entrants were dreaming of shredding out lead guitar riffs with the major prize as they submitted their entries into the Yamaha Day 2021 #UnitedByYamaha competition. Following careful deliberation, the Yamaha Motor Australia Board of Directors judged the entry by Elwyn Jordan as the one that stood out from the crowd and best captured the #UnitedByYamaha spirit.
Elwyn's highly entertaining Instagram post revealed he's been #UnitedByYamaha for more than 40 years. His story and pictorial walk down memory lane unveiled a long-time musician and motorcycle rider with a passion for guitars and two wheels - as long as they carry the Yamaha badge. Topped off with the hashtags #UnitedByYamaha and #YamahaDay2021, his competition entry caught the eye of the judges.
The keen guitarist had his fingers and toes crossed leading up to the big announcement and was super excited when he received the the good news.
"I'm a huge fan of Yamaha, and I'm thrilled to have won the Yamaha Revstar Guitar," Elwyn said on receiving the news of his win.
"I bought my first Yamaha guitar in 1979 and loved the quality so much I've been adding more Yamaha's to the collection ever since."
Elwyn said he has a range of Yamaha guitars in his collection including bass, electric and classical models. "Now I'm looking forward to adding the Revstar, it's such a unique looking guitar."
Also a keen motorcyclist, Elwyn purchased his first Yamaha motorbike way back in 1977 and has never looked back. "I've only owned Yamaha's since - I love the quality and reliability."
Also up for grabs in this year's competition were two ShopYamaha gift vouchers. Rachel Ferlazzo claimed the $500 voucher, and Scott Wolfson the $200 voucher. Both winners will enjoy a shopping spree choosing from the huge range of products available at ShopYamaha.com.au
