Information:

Well, folks, we have to admit that Gibson’s Les Paul are among our favorite looking guitar. But that Ruokangas Unicorn Artisan simply beats everything we had until now. This piece of excellent finish craftmanship has a wonderfull looking high gloss finish with Ruokangas Unicorn Custom Pickups, exceptionnal figured Arctic Birch top and the super nice looking F hole. The body binding brings it’s shiny look aswell thanx to its high gloss finish. So this baby looks classy, and be sure you’ll play and plug it aswell, as it’s a dream guitar.

The body and neck are made of spanish cedar, very lightweight and very resonant, it brings so much sustain and definition on the tone, you won’t believe it. Thanx to the birch top, this guitar also screams and has a very straight attack. Each notes jumps out of that axe. The top is definitely among the wildest and most figured Arctic Birch we’ve seen, and we had many Ruokangas, among them some high end custom orders with exceptional top. But this ones is clearly above the previous ones we had. Killer grain, killer look, killer figures. The cedar neck has a 59 boat shape with stainless steel jumbo frets. The indian rosewood fretboard helps this amazing neck beeing the most confortable we ever had. Damn this guitar is a killer player.

This piece of excellent finish craftmanship first was built for a US based store in 2013, sold for 10500$ to a spanish collector, and then we ended up having it after a deal in early 2020. It remained in as new second hand condition and still comes with its original Hiscox case, certificate and documentation. The regular waiting for a Ruokangas is usualy 8 to 10 monthes and such exceptional top and features would cost an arm and a lef now. Oh, and this very specific gutiar was played by Dweezil Zappa, there are some videos on the internet, how cool about that.
