Perfect harmony of playability, tone & unique looks – the key principles behind every instrument that goes through the hands of luthier Mika “Raato” Ruotsalainen. His passion for music as a guitarist, bassist and gear addict led him on the quest for the ultimate instrument. After years of studying, designing, crafting and developing ideas further he reached the point that it was time to turn his passion into full-time joy.
