Like Volt W. Jingjit and Daniela Padrón, we met Laura during our first NAMM Show! It was in 2017! She was looking for new devices and music instruments for her live performances. And she stopped by our booth to try the 3Dvarius.
She came again last year at the NAMM Show and tried the 5-string 3Dvarius. Now, she played her own personalized 5-string 3Dvarius.
She decided to not insert text on the 3Dvarius body. At the end, its design is really different!
Her name was engraved on the 3Dvarius side and she chose the most lighter tunings pegs of the market for a maximum playing comfort!
