DUKE Artisan #300SOLD

Ruokangas Duke Artisan #300

I designed the Duke model between years 1996 and 1997 – over 20 years ago! During these decades the Duke has remained one of our most popular guitars, and as we noticed that the Duke serial number #300 was approaching, we thought it would be fun to make something we haven’t quite done before. Happy to introduce the new colour ‘Arctic Pearl White’. Looks fantastic with gold plated hardware and the numerous glossy Arctic Birch details of the guitar. Hope you like it!
