Frankfurt Musikmesse 2005

Years go by flying… This was our 6th time at Frankfurt Musikmesse, and it feels almost like yesterday when we drove there the very first time together with Markku Henneken with his small Toyota stacked up with gear… Lots of memories – a german luthier Magnus Krempel was kind enough to accommodate us, poor young luthiers, for the messe week, and every day we drove from Magnus’ small village to Frankfurt together with this totally crazy bassplayer Markus Setzer… What a time.

Frankfurt calls again! Already a tradition, Ruokangas Guitars and Henneken Archtops shared a booth at the biggest musical instrument trade show in Europe. We had great time and met a lot of new and old friends – and got some serious attention too. A number of guitar magazines – Guitarist and The Guitar Magazine (UK), Gitarre und Bass (Germany) and Fuzz (Sweden) test reviewed our guitars in the following months of the Messe appearance.

Frankfurt Musikmesse 2000

This was the first time Ruokangas Guitars attended Frankfurt Musikmesse. We were there together with another Finnish guitarmaker, Markku Henneken. The journey from Finland to Germany was a hilarious one – all the guitars, other equipment and ourselves stuffed into Markkus’ Toyota Carina II! The show was great fun, we got to know lots of nice people and learned a whole lot of useful things about trade fairs in general.
