Matias's new guitar!

Hei!

http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuse ... =504005842

thought it might be interesting for some folks here...


...does gold hardware + white body make anyone else think of Steve Vai's guitar?


cheers!

Sure does remind me of Vai's Jem.

I cant's see the myspace page, so could anyone post the facts bout the guitar?

:shock:

Wow... that's so beautifull..........
And well I din't think of Steve Vai xD...
maybe because Matias likes Paul Reed Smith guitars and I think looks more like one.
Oh, and I have one declaration to make.

To me:

Matias > Vai

Amazing guitar, I love it! The white and gold reminds me of Emmpu's old washburn that he used back in the days. It's an amazing colourcombination!

If it sounds anything like the black Ruokangas guitar he used on the tour, I'm sure it'll be killer...

Lovely looking instrument, for sure!

basically, he went to Ruokangas guitars and got his own custom made. It's a Hellcat with True Temperament frets, a Duke headstock, Polaris inlay at 12, and custom paint thingy. to sum up.

Ruokangas.com has a guitar builder, so you can 'make your own' guitar there- different wood, paint, pickups etc... they're not cheap though. it's like a 2000 euro base on the Hellcat...
great way to waste time though!

cheers.

Gotta love te guitar, but there's something I don't really understand

why are the frets like... "bent"? :S I've never seen something like that. Maybe someone with more knowledge than me about guitars could explain this to me. I'm completely puzzled
