Our story…

…began in 2012 when I started building guitars in a small 7m² upstairs room in my home with cheap tools and cheap woods. To my suprise, even my first guitar was playable and from then on I dedicated my time to developing and honing my skills.

My Apprentice, Kalle, started as an intern in late 2016 and continued into a full apprenticeship in May 2017 onward – as a fellow metalhead he quickly understood my philosophy and mentality in building guitars.

We are continuing to develop our own collection and style of guitarmaking while doing our absolute best in fulfilling our customer’s wishes in any and all aspects of guitarmaking: body shape & contouring, color, finish, hardware and pickups, and special customizations – we’ve even made specially designed guitars for players who’ve had injuries that prohibit playing off-the-peg guitars.

We would like to thank each and every one of you who’ve placed your order, and to show this appreciation we’re granting 10% off on every returning customer.

From metalheads to other metalheads, and real people as well

We are doing a survey on Kiiras Instruments and Katras brands, and my website in collaboration with a student working on his bachelors thesis at Jyväskylä School of Business and Economics.

If you could spare at most 10 minutes of your time and answer a few very straight forward questions online, this would help massively both me and Sampo working on his thesis!

And as an extra incentive, I’m giving out 3 pack of Dunlop guitar strings to FIVE winners if you choose to take part in the giveaway in the end of the survey.

Here’s a link to the english survey:


And the survey in finnish:

Decided to come in today and assemble this military finish prototype. What do you guys think?

Ash wood body, with dark olive green paint and yellow stencils, Gotoh GE1996T Floyd Rose, and super cool Italian Zead Pickups Scorpio pickup.
