Landola Buffalo V-71 (Martin Style) 1960's


Landola guitars have been manufactured since 1942. The first mass-produced guitar hit the market in early 1946. The company, initially known as Munkers, was founded by the Mattson brothers in Jakobstad, Finland. Munkers designed and developed his own guitar models and production methods.

In the 1950s, with competition being very strong, Landola still managed to prosper with a factory producing nearly 3,000 guitars per year. And this was during the following decade, after the success of his participation in the Frankfurt Music Fair. that Landola will begin exporting its guitars to the United States, Canada and of course throughout Europe.

Although the 1970s and 1980s saw the arrival of guitar makers from South East Asia producing inexpensive instruments, putting pressure on the Scandinavian market. But Landola will remain the only guitar manufacturing company in the Nordic countries to survive, to this day.
