Few examples of Katras -series guitars:

Customers outside EU don't have to pay VAT (Value Added Tax), so tax is deducted from the price.

Finnish VAT is 24%, but due to increased costs in shipping, customs declarations etc., I can't deduct it fully but I'm giving flat 10% reduction in price. Feel free to contact me for any further info at kiiras@kiirasinstruments.com

Wenge is a hard species of wood, and there fore well suited for fretboards. Grain patterns are ofter very beautiful, colour varies from milk chocolate to almost pitch black when oiled. RockLite Ebano is a environmentally friendly and sustainable ebony substitute made from real wood - ie. it's not vulcanized paper / "laminate flooring". It has a grain pattern of it's own; is 100% stable; feels and sounds like the real thing; and - of course - looks black as AAA -grade ebony. Read more at http://www.rocklite.co.uk/

For a custom fretboard inlay you can send me a photo (or a link to) of what you have in mind by email, I'll scale it to fit on the sketch for your approval. Price is determined by the length of outline need to cut at 0.30€ per millimeter. For example a box of 40mm x 40mm dimensions would have four sides each 40mm long, so 160mm in total, which would be (0,30 * 160) 48€. Minimum charge is 150€.

Materials available:

* White mother of pearl

Hardware & electronics
Gotoh hardware is world renown for highest possible quality and reliability.
  • GE103B-T Tune-O-Matic is a superb quality guitar bridge, no frills, no spills. Everything you'll ever need.
  • Ti103B-T is same as GE103B-T, but with extraordinarily hard TITANIUM saddles which improve tone and will last a lifetime of hard palying!
  • GE1996T Floyd Rose tremolo is one of the very best in the market, I'd claim it to be better than FR Originals. High stability, smooth feel when playing and rock solid construction with steel saddles, steel base and brass block.
  • Hipshot Fixed guitar bridge, world renown for durability and tone
  • Evertune F-model. Evertune keeps your guitar ever in tune by sheer witchcraft!
For tuners I've chosen Gotoh for Katras series:
