One of the prettiest ones I've seen. Nice score!
wow! that is definitely one of the nicest veneers i've seen on an E-II
E-IIs have veneers, not actual tops?
yes, they've used veneers on guitars for about 15 years at least, when they were ESP Standard Series. they use maple cap with veneer. For nice, solid maple top you'll need to pay another 2-3k to get ESP USA or custom shop
Oh wow, a Ruokangas. We found the lottery winner
Here's my Siggi
WOW. It's almost like it's got 3 different tops, what an amazing top that has.
Last night I upgraded the tuners and replaced the collapsing bridge on this beauty.
Graph Tech Ratio locking tuners and Graph Tech bridge with string saver saddles.
you weren't kidding! never heard of Ruokangas, and having looked at it, and its price, i now understand why. Certainly lottery type money

Some of the models indeed fetch a lot of money, but the basic models are more 'reasonable' so to speak. The brand is considered the best of the best here.
Here's a video diary of a particular build, a LP type called Unicorn
That might explain somewhat the reputation they have
Took the plunge on that
Anyone think it’s good ?
Being looking for one for a long time and the price was ok ( i’ve seen crazy stuff about that)
Hard to find good infos as i read stuff and their opposite 2 lines after
I’m getting old i want stuff from the 80’s lol
Dude! Awesome! I'm also on a big 80s thing right now -- trying to hunt down a nightswan or some cool non-jp valley arts. I'm sure that pro-axe is probably a pretty solid guitar. I just think when it comes to these shredders, they were pretty obviously capable guitars when they were made, and I think 90% of it is pickups and a well setup floyd, so as long as the setup is good and it looks cool, I think it'll deliver!
Should get it tomorrow
Not even sure about the pups brand inside
Well I mean, I paid around the same as a Gibson 1959 VOS finish is these days but this one is a custom guitar with specs I personally prefer much more and made made less than 100km away from where I live. No lottery win needed, figured I'd save a bit more money and got myself an early 30s present back when I got her in 2014...
Put a new pickguard on my Jag -- what a fun guitar to play. I'm also preferring to use single coils lately more often than not...GASing really hard for a telecaster right now.
this epi is one of the best Epi i've had in my hands
So here it is after a good cleanup
It was real dirty. Cleaned everything, repaired the clear crack, polished frets etc....
Cool axe. The switch switch layout/logic is...weird
May resell it later
EPIC!! I love it!!
