Shadowman guitar customization was originally made for the needs of Jimmy Westerlund (composer, song writer, producer and guitarist in One Desire band). Jimmy was looking for advanced, modern and at the same time classics style guitar with sustainer features for One Desire band album recording sessions and coming live performances: The album has been now released under name "Midnight Empire" by One Desire band. From that live album there has been released two official album videos where Jimmy plays his black Shadowman guitar.
