Updated: Mar 24, 2022

We made a new custom guitar for guitar Samuli Federley few weeks ago. His new custom guitar is 8-string customized V25-FX8/H Skyfire from our V25-series. After getting his new guitar, Samuli has made several videos and live streaming sessions with Skyfire guitar. Here few links to these:

First clip is from the ad-hoc session Samuli played when was visiting our office and playing first notes with the guitar. From the first note he was feeling comfortable with the guitar since it was customized according to his wishes - colors, inlay signatures, knob layout optimized his playing style, shrecut-cutaway for his left hand needs etc.

In next video Samuli Federley plays classic music: Antonio Vivaldi's Winter from the Four Seasons (Le quattro stagioni), which is the best known of Vivaldi's works. Samuli Federley has performed Vivaldi's compositions live with real symphony orchestras.

Next video is Samuli Federley's Nyctophilia which was made for a Finnish drag racing team called Mesiniemi Racing Team. They are European and Finnish champions in this sport and this song acts as their anthem.
