Ruokangas Guitars Announces the Supersonic and Aeon

A pair of new models with some high-end features.

CITY, STATE (MONTH 00, 2015) -- “They say rock music is from the devil. Don’t know about that, but there sure is something devilishly seductive in mean, stripped down rock’n’roll – and that’s exactly what provoked me to create the Unicorn Supersonic.” – Juha Ruokangas

The Supersonic features a new unique Bare Bone finish by Ruokangas. Another new original feature are the Lock-Thru-Body bridge bushings, that make the guitar stronger (the wraparound bridge can not bend forward in time) and guarantee unparalleled energy transference from the bridge to the body of the guitar.

Starting at $4,200

Aeon Classic / Deluxe / Artist

“6 strings, 24 frets - the door to infinity… Words by one of my clients. He made me realize we don’t have an instrument for the modern soloist type guitarist who wants to play fast on full two octaves of frets - but doesn’t enjoy the locking trem. Now we have that guitar.” – Juha Ruokangas

The Aeon comes in three versions - Classic with thermo-treated alder body and bolt-on neck - Deluxe with spanish cedar body, arctic birch top and bolt-on neck - and Artist with spanish cedar body, arctic birch top and neck-thru-body. As always with Ruokangas, you have a truckload of options to customize the guitar to fit your style. The word ‘Aeon’ is latin, and means "infinity."

Starting at $4,000

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
