Announcing the Winners of the #SaltAndCharcoal 2022 Solo Competition

At long last, we are thrilled to declare the official winner and top 3 runners-up of the September SaltAndCharcoal 2022 Solo Competition!

For this contest, the scope was to record yourself playing a live, original solo over Plini‘s song “Salt + Charcoal“, for the chance to win a signed Boden Prog NX 7 Charcoal Black, exclusive .strandberg* goodies, and a virtual artist hang. There were so many genuinely amazing solos and it was a daunting task to choose just a single winner with over 340 contributions made. However, a final decision was made in the end by the jury…

Runner Up 1/3 – Dylan Ringuede

Runner Up 2/3 – Johannes Persson

Runner Up 3/3 – Felipe Facó








And last but not least, our 1st place winner…
























1st Place – François Chanvallon


Congratulations, François! A truly brilliant solo and we hope you love your new guitar and goodies. Massively well-deserved!

Thank you again to everyone who participated in the contest and congratulations to the winners! Be sure to follow these players on social media, as well as .strandberg* Guitars on Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook for more inspiring musicianship from our creative community of players.
