The Fuzz Guitar Show 2015 in Gothenburg (Sweden) runs May 9th and 10th, 2015.
Four Finnish brands garnered considerable interest at the show:
Juha Lottonen and Juha Rinne (Lottonen Guitars) are fast becoming the go-to guys for small-bodied Folk and Blues guitars off the beaten path.
Lottonen Guitars mostly use alder (!) for their necks, as well as birch for many of their backs and sides.
Lottonen employ different bracing patterns and bridge designs to achieve a multitude of different guitar timbres.
Eric Bibb is the most famous Lottonen user.
Fingerstylists and Blues-pickers simply can’t get enough of the Lottonen tone.
Tyyster Guitars’ dynamic duo and their mouth-watering metal-bodied guitars.
Ville Tyyster brought along an unfinished guitar to give you an idea of what goes into the making of a Tyyster Pelti.
Tyyster’s clear lines and cool colours whet your appetite. Their playability and sound will make you want one!
Kari Nieminen’s tasteful Versoul Instruments have found their way into the hands of many serious guitar collectors and guitar heroes alike (Ron Wood, Billy Gibbons, just to name two in a long list).
This salmon skin-covered 4-watter was definitely one of the show stoppers at this year’s Fuzz.
The all-valve combo can be modified to the user’s requirements by changing the tube types.
…and if you have a salmon-skinned amp, you will need the matching, breathtakingly beautiful Versoul Guitar, too!
Amp and effect specialists Mad Professor were represented at Fuzz by their Swedish distributors.
