Flaxwood Oy, Finland
Deep in the northern woods around Joensuu in Eastern Finland, where vast misty forests abound, grows a very special tree...
...perfected by men of the Finnish timberland areas, whose hearts were full of music, and full of love for the wood from which fine musical instruments are made.
Seeing exotic tree species dangerously coming closer to extinction each day, they decided to act. Looking both to preserve and to innovate, they set out to develop a revolutionary new molded wood material, one that would resonate like the very finest of the fine traditional musical tonewoods. The sound produced was to be both warm and rich, yet the material also needed to be suitable for today's environmentally friendly production methods.
And so it came to pass, that a new molded wood material was born, and they called it flaxwood, a testimony to the warm magic of wood in a new, innovative form.
Flaxwood Guitars were born of a dream of making a better guitar.
A guitar with all the characteristics that make a difference to the most demanding player: full, rich tone; extended sustain; wide frequency response and dynamic range; trouble-free tuning and flawless intonation.
Rethinking wood as an instrument-building material.
Experienced luthiers and experts possessing decades of knowledge in both traditional guitar building and modern, advanced material technology put their collective expertise together to create an alternative to traditional tonewoods that near extinction. After years of research, experiments and good, old-fashioned hard work, Flaxwood Guitars has created a high quality, stable, and ecologically friendly molded wood material that can stand up to the high standards today's players have come to expect of boutique instruments. Now, we proudly present the fruits of our labor -- the new line of Flaxwood Guitars.
Flaxwood Guitars - tradition and high-quality handcraft in perfect harmony with revolutionary technology.
