"Tommi Aitala had the idea of combining old and modern designs in electric guitar building. The “Cadillac V9″ as he call it is built based on Randy Rhoads & Grover Jackson designed V-shape early ’80s guitar and 1960 Cadillac parts. ’60s colour scheme, chrome hardware, modern functionality, artificially aged finish. It also has a Ned Steinberger -style leg rest to increase comfort of playing while playing seated. Parts from ’40s, ’50s, ’60s and ’80s make futuristic but classic appeal." by gina
