Juha Ruokangas talks about CITES

This guitar was made specifically for The Holy Grail Guitar Show 2018 as part of their Local Wood Challenge. It is the first ever Unicorn made completely out of Finnish tonewood. All the wooden parts are thermo treated. The body and neck are made of alder and the top, fretboard and headstock face are made of arctic birch. And you know what? The guitar sounds absolutely beautiful!
