New CREO series 7-string headless guitar customization made for Toni Vesala - playing in Tahrat band. We met Toni roughly 1 year ago and gave an opportunity to test and play one of our 7-string CREO guitar. Toni liked a lot about the guitar and started to think his personal customization needs. Later last spring we created the specification about CREO to be customized for him. Toni has earlier experience with Strandberg headless guitars.
Toni's own custom guitar key feature selections were:
Metallic Light Blue color combined with white pickup color
Chrome hardware color
Bare Knuckle Pickups in H-S configuration - bridge: SILO 7 neck: TRIPTYCH 7
Asymmetric neck profile
Semi-Gloss Nitrocellulose finish
CREO series is available with wide set of customization choices and is also available as 6-, 7- and 8-string versions. About the design principles of CREO: modern classic design, strap locks positions in traditional places make it easy to use guitar in live, studio and home. Jack is positioned also so that it works in live standing positions as well while sitting.

Tahrat band represent genuine thinking and creative madness in the right mix. Band has hijacked the canon of Finnish rock, explored it thoroughly and in the end mildly abused it. Also they have searched tempo and rhythm from folk music, speed from metal and edge and sharpness from punk, without forgetting melodies from pop. Currently they lyrics are in Finnish language.
