Official .strandberg* 200k Contest 2021

Calling all creatives!

As you may know, the .strandberg* Guitars Instagram page recently hit a milestone of 200k followers on Instagram, and to show our gratitude to our incredibly creative and supportive community, we’re pleased to announce the Official .strandberg* 200k Contest 2021 (with bonus Secondary Challenge)!

This contest is a little different from the ones .strandberg* Guitars have hosted in the past. In the spirit of creativity and pushing the envelope, we are asking you to create a “customized” .strandberg* guitar graphic via the provided PNG template below. But it doesn’t stop there — the winner of the 200k Contest will then receive one (1) refurbished Boden Metal Yellow NT to actually be customized per their submitted template. While a refurb guitar is just as unique and beautiful in its own way, we want this guitar to be an expression of you the player! This “proof-of-concept” mock-up will serve as an approximation of how you intend to customize the guitar, should you receive it.

The winner of the 200k Contest will be selected based on the creativity, originality, and practicality of their submission (i.e. how realistic it is that the design can be created physically) via our panel of .strandberg* Spark Leads + Ola Strandberg. By participating in the 200k Contest, you are agreeing that you have the resources available to customize the refurbished Boden Metal Yellow NT per your submitted mock-up. Of course, you don’t need to be a master luthier by any stretch of the imagination, but you should have the means to customize the guitar as you see fit. Paint, ink, 3D print, vinyl sticker, engraving: anything goes! Your local guitar tech or luthier may also be able to help with priming, refinishing, coating, etc. There are plenty of online resources and instructions on such guitar customization methods as well.

See the refurbished Boden Metal Yellow NT below:
