Ruokangas Guitars are based in Finland, and is headed by Juha Ruokangas and his very capable team. In his words, he’s a guitar maker. An entrepreneur… Yes – but the hippie type, who’d rather put Peace, Love & Music first.
Ruokangas Guitars has a total of 7 models to choose from.
- The Duke is the flagship model, and the very first model that started Juha on his quest for the holy grail of guitars.
- The VSOP is Juha’s take on the S-style guitars.
- The Mojo brings you the T-style twang.
- The Hellcat answers the call from all the shredders out there, and provides the 24 frets needed to reach the highest notes.
- The Unicorn is Juha’s answer to the classic 1959 tone.
- The Steambass covers the low-end sound spectrum and brings every bit of Finnish guitar-building goodness to our bass players.
- The Aeon is a super-Strat model that completes the entire line-up, and is the latest addition.
We’re sure you can find something to suit your playing and musical tastes!
I knew about Ruokangas Guitars more than 12 years ago, and first met Juha in 2010, at a guitar show in Belgium. Imagine the odds. And now, we’re already reaching 10 years of collaboration. Time really flies.
