Building guitars north of Tampere, Finland

Visited my friend Juha (pictured below) at his workshop (also pictured) in the woods in Finland, and made a little “guitar”.

The body was hand carved from a single block of elder, and the tuning pegs from a block of maple.

Will post photos when I put strings and a pick-up on it 🙂

His hardcore band is here:
