Breaking news: Mika’s new “Cracking Frog” Aeon from Ruokangas Guitars

Mika's new guitar build by Ruokangas guitars.Mika recieved a new guitar from Ruokangas Guitars. This one is called “Cracking Frog”.
Guitar is much based on the original Aeon guitar which Mika has been playing the past few years now. While the performance is equally as excellent and quite similar to the original, there are some differences here. The tone is different: the woods and pickups have changed.

The fretboard is taken from the same piece of wood as the previous guitar. The vivid look was even more enhanced by the hand drawn inlays.

BTW: Ruokangas has a brand new website. It’s the most stunning and beautiful guitar site you have ever seen. Check it out here:

You can be sure that this guitar will be seen in company of Mika from now on!!!


Custom Sounds blog of Mika’s pedalboard

Kimmo Aroluoma from Custom Sounds wrote a beefy blog about Mika and his new pedalboard Custom Sounds built last spring. It’s in finnish but you will enjoy the pictures and videos atleast. Or try google translate if you’re very adventurous!
I read Kimmo’s Backstage blog often and I’m absolutely thrilled to be featured here.
