My name is Tibor Papp, the mind behind Ragnarök Guitars & Basses. A small instrument producer workshop in Sweden, near Gothenburg.
As it says on the headstocks: Handbyggd i Sverige, all the instruments on the page were handbuilt by me, on Swedish soil.
I always had a huge interest for history, heathen beliefs, runes and Scandinavian mythology. My works are strongly influenced by these factors, as anyone can see - and l’m proud of that! That’s why the page is www.ragnarokguitars.se, not ragnarokguitars.com, to show the roots clearly.
Music is very important to me, I guess this was humanity’s biggest invention. It’s unbelievable to me how some notes (call them melody) can make us happy, angry, give us power or work as a time machine.
I mean, l remember very well first time l listened to AC/DC with my elder brother, but have no clue what I had for breakfast yesterday.
And this is the main idea with custom instruments. They help you find yourself, to achieve your dreams and make you inspired all the time.
