Lefty Unicorn nr 1 - custom built for Juha Torvinen of Eppu Normaali

Spotlight - Lefty Unicorn nr 1

It doesn’t happen every spring, but often enough anyways, that I’m kind of half expecting it. You see, for some reason Juha Torvinen, the guitarist of Finnish rock band Eppu Normaali tends to order new guitars from us in the spring time, when sun is shining and birds are chirping after a long cold winter. It’s a good time to get a new guitar! But this particular instrument is not “just one more”. It happens to be the first left handed Unicorn we ever made, so it required a whole lotta special attention. Juha wanted a classic gold top color to the guitar, and the pickups are his personal favorites, our humbucker sized P9o:s called the SingleSonics – and in this case the covers were one-off custom work for us by Harry Häussel. The “star” logo you see on the back of the headstock has its own funny Eppu Normaali -related story to it – but unfortunately I’m not allowed to tell it here. When you bump into Juha Torvinen sometimes, feel free to ask him – you’ll get a good laugh!
