Without Stig Landström, The Beatles' guitar riffs would have sounded a little different. In the 1960s Landström invented the shark's fin-shaped guitar plectrum Sharkfin. This new shape of plectrum spread across the world, and also came to be used by international artists in the world of pop, such as The Beatles and The Beach Boys. Now Landström has passed away, at the age of 85. (SR Mim 17/9)

 Stig Landström was a musician in great demand in the Gothenburg area. He ran his own guitar workshop and also worked for many years at the Levins guitar factory in Gothenburg.
