Used - Excellent condition
We just received this amazing guitar on a trade in. It was completely custom built by Finnish master guitar builder Juha Ruokangas and completed in May 2020.
"The Unicorn sums up my career in so many ways. The special wood materials I’ve learned to love so much, my trademark constructional features, the tonal fine-tuning, the aesthetic and ergonomic balance - it’s all there - entwined with tradition, reinventing the roots. A guitar that at first glance may appear conventional, yet when experienced, turns out to be quite exceptional.
The Unicorn tops are all made from arctic birch because of its unparalleled tone, and appearance that is unlike any other guitars. Figured arctic birch is not readily available, so I need to hunt it down the hard way - I trek in the forests, hand-pick the trees I want, and the logs are cut exclusively for me. It’s a lot of work - but I’m stubborn enough to walk the extra mile."
