    Its a Ruokangas Mojo Grande. It is a hollow body tele with Spanish Cedar back and sides and a figured arctic birch top and fretbaord. The neck is maple, and the guitar has a set of Mojo Blues pickups in it. I happen to think it is the most beautiful guitar I have ever seen. I also got rid of my bogner ecstasy and 1x12s to save some cash and I got a Victoria 5112. These two together make for an amazing jazz blues combo. I am happier than ever.

    The way the neck pickup is mounted is kind of cool.

    Very cool and unique, too- I likes it.:) If my monitor isn't failing me, it looks like there's a bit of black binding just below the fingerboard- nice detail if so?

    It is nice to see that one of ours, has gotten a good home. Somewhere along the way, we started calling these Mojo Grandes with the Arctic Birch fretboard and rosewood veneer; Mojo Supreme.

    They are quite popular right now particularly in the US. Arctic Birch fretboards that started sort of like an experiment, have been greeted very well.

    Sincerely,
