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

Thanks to you all crazy metal heads out there who've ordered a guitar from me (14 of you!) during the past six months, I've had no other choice to start building these guitars full time again! Expect to see more updates with more guitar in the future, along with some crazy new ideas I have already!

Keep on rocking, y'all!
