Ø. Husemoen Guitars and Norwegian Wood Series
Øystein Husemoen

Luthier Øystein Husemoen founded Husemoens Gitarmakeri in 2003 after completing his German Journeyman’s Certificate of Apprenticeship the year before. In 2009 Fredrik Berg Christensen joined as an apprentice, and the workshop in Lillehammer delivers high-level custom acoustic, electric and bass guitars.
Their Norwegian Wood Series guitars was first introduced at the 2010 Fuzz Guitar Show in Göteborg, and demonstrates the diversity of tone you can create using only sustainable Norwegian woods. Their unique sustainable profile combined with high quality instruments has brought great Norwegian artists as well as major international names to their customer list.

It was great to see that the HGGS 2014 turned out to be such a success, and that they have managed to create this great arena for meeting with both collegues and customers from all over the world. I`m proud to be invited back for the sequel.

Building custom guitars is all about providing guitarists with their own individual combination of sound, playability and visual appearance. My ultimate goal is always to build an instrument they will be proud of and that will inspire their creativity for years. With the Norwegian Wood Series guitars, I have committed myself to doing so using only sustainable Norwegian woods.
