you want a great playing, great
sounding axe that won’t warp.
you need a locking trem for
never-ending dive bombs.
tweaked by bending the bar if it were a big
issue for the player.
Now, what I really want to rave about here is
the neck, wow! It feels absolutely rock solid
and smooth—like buttah! The fret job is excellent, and those of you who are non-stop guitar
junkies know that great fret jobs on a new
guitar out of the box are few and far between
these days. The Liekki comes out of the case
ready to hit the stage, and I am finicky on this
topic. I don’t think that in my 40 years of guitar
picking I have had more than a handful of guitars that didn’t at least need the action worked
a bit, but this one didn’t—perfect set-up and
intonation from the git go. The company tells
me they are considering Fender-style replacement necks as a possibility, and I would buy
one of those right now.

At $3K the Liekki isn’t an entry-level instrument,
and Flaxwood so far only has a few dealers in
the USA. I have played guitars many times the
cost of these that can’t touch them for playabil- Flaxwoood

MSRP $3093 (fixed bridge);
and the neck is probably the best feeling neck
I’ve ever had my hands on. I would encourage $3269 (with tremolo)
