This article series is about the tools of popular guitarists. What are their favorite guitars and how is it related to them? This time with Kasperi Heikkinen (Beast In Black & Merging Flare) and his IBANEZ LACS guitar.

This is the ultimate weapon and hands down the best guitar I have ever played.
I got the guitar from the Ibanez Los Angeles Custom Shop at the end of 2019. It was a real dream come true to design my very own guitar with my very own technical specs.
