vandermeij welcomes new artist: Juuso soinio

We are proud to welcome Juuso Soinio to the VanderMeij Guitars family! Juuso is best known as guitarist and one of the founding members of the the Finnish heavy metal band Battle Beast. He is currently touring the USA with his freshly finished sixstring Magistra, loaded with an Evertune bridge. Juuso brought the woods on the top and headstock from Finland to Amsterdam himself when he visited during the building process!

“In 2017 I was looking for suitable guitar manufacturer to collaborate with. I was hoping for something personal and unique”, tells Juuso. “I heard about VanderMeij guitars from Merel (Bechtold) when we crossed ways with Delain on our US tour. After testing one of their showcase guitars for a few weeks I was impressed with the quality and sound, it was an easy choice to go ahead and order a custom build!”
