Juha Ruokangas interview – Builder of the Captain Nemo guitar and the Valvebucker

Juha Ruokangas was one of the guitar builder I really wanted to meet during the Holy Grail Guitar Show, that's why I was thrilled to do a 45min video interview with him. Juha has established a brand so highly regarded in the guitar world that I had a tons of questions to ask him. Furthermore, he had just finished one week earlier a 3 year long project with the Captain Nemo guitar (see below) so he had a lot to tell.

Subjects discussed in the interview

  • His first guitar
  • How he became a guitar luthier
  • How he came up with the idea of the Captain Nemo guitar
  • All the details about the ValveBucker which powers the Captain Nemo guitar
  • A complete visit of the guitar
  • How he co-organized the Holy Grail Guitar Show with a core team of 8 people from the EGB
  • And more !
