Make sure to tag my Instagram or Facebook profile. The best contribution gets the golden Ibanez Prestige guitar I played on tour in 2019. I played it at the Rock am Ring and Rock im Park festivals and there are tons of amazing memories and moments stored in that guitar!”

Second and third place winners of the challenge will receive a free Elevation Box Set, including a Digipak, personally signed autograph card, five poster practice set and a personal message from BERNTH.

“Dopamine” is the second single from Elevation, following BERNTH’s massively successful interpretation of Paganini’s “Caprice No. 24.” “I couldn't believe how fast the first music video was growing on YouTube, it has over 400.000 views after just a couple of weeks!” BERNTH says. “Guitar World Magazine featured it amongst many other huge media outlets and I'm so happy to finally release the full album after four years of hard work. ‘Elevation’ is for all the guitar lovers and shred enthusiasts out there, let's blast it on full volume on release day to prove that guitar music is NOT dead!”
