Amfisound Guitars
Sampo Leppävuoro & Tomi Korkalainen

Amfisound Guitars – Luthier duo with two different product lines.
The Classic Line features modern, classic-style guitars and basses.
The Extreme Line includes guitars for heavy metal and extreme music.

We want to attend the The Holy Grail Guitar Show, since it’s the place for independent Luthiers to show their special fields and skills.

»We both have a huge respect and love for the music, and we have always shared the feeling that music isn’t only about sounds, but that there is something deeply emotional and personal about it.These are things which we have always applied to our guitar building. In our field it’s important to know the music genre and its demands.

We basically have to know the techniques for getting wood playable and yet understand feeling and mood of different music styles, so that we can “paint” the musical atmosphere into the whole project. As a guitar builder in our field you need to have a big knowledge of different areas such as culture, movies and other art.

Customizing is an art that is personal. It should refer to you own life and to things important to you. Actually, the best ideas and the spirit of the instrument emerge and take shape when speaking about normal, everyday life and not just about guitars. We have always wanted to keep our guitars updated for today’s demands and each of our instruments is an individual piece of art or custom. We build our guitars in a traditional way by using “old school” machines that are operated by hand.«
