Vuorensaku Guitars is a one mans guitar workshop from Jyväskylä, Finland.
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. Another place I did some training during school time was in Lakewood Guitars in Giessen, Germany.
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 7 years now on. Mostly I work with repairs, maintenance and custom jobs but also make some fine custom made one-off instruments and custom pickups. 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”. My passion for reliced and aged styled has inspired from old Finnish houses and furniture from 1950’s. With my custom pickups my concept is to make my customers wishes come true. Every pickup set and replacements are individuals and made with specs every customer wants it to be. Offcourse I’ve been working on my own collection here too. My low-output concept is called "El Kamiina" (means some old stove). One big innovation I have found and used with them is old Finnish coil wire from 1970's. The thing is that it's thicker than traditional pickup wires. The AWG number is near 40, which means 0,08mm. Cause of the wire there comes really full wound coils but still way more lower output than in traditional singlecoils. But when you compare inductances they produce unexpectedly over 2,0H. The sound is clear but bassy. Something totally differet. Something I belive every one should hear by them selfs!! Along with the business I have worked as a guitar tech with touring artists like Andy McCoy and also as a part-time teacher in the Folk School and a bandschool called Rock Academy in my home town. And after all this I’ve been playing some doublebass with couple of bands and projects just for clearing my head and having fun and feeling like "a rock star" my self
