The Ruokangas Guitars Unicorn Supersonic is a sensational electric guitar from Finnish luthier Juha Ruokangas.
Ever since we first set eyes on the Ruokangas Unicorn Supersonic we just had to have them in the showroom. Based on the classic LP Junior design, this little monster comes with the Ruokangas Bare Bone finish, Spanish Cedar neck & body and a pair of classic Häussel 1956 P90 soapbar pickups. What a combo!
This Unicorn Supersonic #197 Bare Bone Faded Yellow model is a real show stopper and a must guitar for any blues or classic rock player out there!
From the Luthier: "Aged look has been one of the hot trends in guitars already for quite a while. I wanted to offer my own twist to this genre – a finish that would feel aged, but still would be unique. So I developed this special method to make the grain structure feel and look worn down and embossed – boosted – in a very natural way. I call it the Bare Bone finish – and it became first available only for the Unicorn Supersonic..."
Stuart Ryan says..
"A stripped back rock 'n' roll machine and so much more, I love the P90s on these - everything from smooth blues to growl is available with a twist of the volume knob. Lovely weight, great playability and the Ruokangas fretwork that makes these a joy to play. P90 singlecuts are far more versatile than you may think and you can certainly get away with a whole gig on one of these guys."
