T FAMILY ‘BIRKE’

Fresh from the lakeland region of central Finland, this pine-bodied boutique stunner blends Fender and Gibson design influences with a dash of rustic Scandi cool

Guitar EDITOR’S CHOICE

Amere 13 years after accidentally winning the Eurovision Song Contest with a goth-metal band, does Finland now have a high-class guitar builder to take on the world? A few days into our time with this beautifully crafted Vuorensaku, we think it might.

Saku Vuori’s designs are inspired by old Finnish houses and furniture and often make use of one of the country’s biggest natural resources: pine trees. Billy Gibbons is a Vuorensaku fan and these premiumpriced instruments are now available in the UK via Coda Music.

This, then, is the T Family ‘Birke’ model. Vuori is a lover of Fender offsets and there’s certainly an element of Jazzmaster in the body shape, not to mention the Mastery bridge and vibrato tailpiece; but that’s combined with a Tele-style control plate and, most distinctively, an elegant German carve around the front edge of the body.
