Vuorensaku Guitars - The Story
I just decided to start building something I truly like myself.
Back in the days at spring 2008 I graduated as an Artisan of Lutherie from Ikaalinen College of Crafts and Design. After that I worked as an apprentice for Master Luthier for 4 years. End on 2019 - after being 11 years in the business I graduated as a Master Luthier my self.
Starting one mans guitar workshop
After those 4 years of experience about the lutherie field and entrepreneurship in general, I decided to try my own wings and established my own workshop Vuorensaku – Hand-Customized Instruments & Repairs . During the spring and summer of 2012 I acquired and fixed a place from an old bakery house at Nisulankatu, in Jyväskylä middle Finland. So I’ve been working on guitars for 12 years now on. Mostly I have worked with repairs, maintenance and custom jobs but for 6 years also making custom instruments to my own T. Family collection has taken a bigger part of my daily work.
T.Family Collection - Tools for Rock´n´Roll
My very first own instrument collection became to take shape at Dec 2014. I just decide to start building something I truly like myself. My love ones the offsets were the base of everything. Then I started to draw, shape and mash up with some classics like Fender Jazzmaster, Teles and Mosrites and there it was. The collection is called “The T. Family” including guitars and basses. My passion for reliced and aged styled has inspired from old Finnish houses and furniture from 1950’s. With my custom pickups my full-service concept is to make my customers wishes come true. All woods, materials and hardware are top quality and selected to meet the highest standards and reliable use. Wood parts are handmade from scratch with dedication to craftsmanship and care for the customers needs.
