The HOC-NORTHBIRD model was developed by Headway in collaboration with Japanese guitarist Tatsuya Maruyama, who is known for his fingerstyle guitar playing, but also takes a modern approach that makes full use of DAWs and enjoys great popularity among Japanese and overseas music fans alike. In order to achieve the playability that Tatsuya seeks, all of the instruments are set up properly, one-by-one, by a specialized department in Japan at Deviser.
