Announcing the .strandberg* Canvas Contest

To celebrate the recent release of the new Boden RESQ:D Canvas models, we are excited to launch the official .strandberg* Canvas Contest.

How does it work?

For those who remember, back in 2021, we held the official .strandberg* 200k Contest, where participants were encouraged to design and submit their very own “customized” .strandberg* guitar design, and the winner would selected to receive a refurbished Boden and actually make their customized guitar dreams a reality.

Well, this contest was such a massive success that we’ve decided to bring back the format for 2024 in honor of the new Boden RESQ:D models in our Canvas White finish.

Win a Boden RESQ:D Canvas guitar

For this contest, 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 Canvas Contest will then receive one (1) white Boden RESQ:D Canvas guitar for them to actually customize per their submitted template.

We want this guitar to be an expression of you the player, so 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 will be responsible for refinishing the white guitar and making their unique finish a reality.

The winner of the Canvas 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 the .strandberg* team.

You must be able to customize the guitar

By participating in the Canvas Contest, you are agreeing that you have the resources available to customize the Boden RESQ:D Canvas 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.
