“Remember what Bilbo said to Frodo in the book – it’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door. You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to… That is exactly how I feel of the outcome of this guitar..!” – Juha Ruokangas
What if the electric guitar would have been invented in 1895..? Juha went on an imaginary journey through an alternative past, mashing up actual historic events to science fiction and fantasy. The result surprised the Team Ruokangas not only by how fascinating way history and fantasy entwined together in this design, but also by the outstanding tone of a new invention…
We’re proud to introduce to you the ValveBucker™! More photos here.
Hey you – guitarist, guitar enthusiast, guitar collector, boutique guitar dealer – do not miss this event!
Important notification for all our German speaking fans! The German Gitarre & Bass magazine is promoting The Holy Grail Guitar Show in the most wonderful way. They’ve opened recently a dedicated Holy Grail website, where they have already collected a nice compilation of photos and will keep on publishing articles and interviews as the show gets closer. Check out Juha’s interview here – and notice that you can download (for free!) from that page all the Ruokangas articles written in Gitarre & Bass!
“As for presence, tone colour and harmonic interaction – with this bridge pickup the Artisan is a tone monster… The Unicorn Artisan belongs to the best of the best… Expensive? Of course, but justified and beyond every doubt worth each Euro.”
– Franz Holtmann / Gitarre & Bass

Check out the new “block inlays” for the Steambass! Available as custom option – white striping on rosewood and ebony, or black striping on birch and maple fretboard. See more info and pics about this bass here!
The Holy Grail Guitar Show is a huge leap to the hand made guitar scene in Europe, differentiating the luthier built guitar from the mass produced products. It is a bold statement, and we are honored, yet humbled to be part of this exciting phenomenon.
You – guitarist and guitar enthusiast – do not miss this event!
