Designed by Japan's most recognized luthier, Masaru Kohno, this instrument is a first-rate concert guitar, and is now made by Kohno's nephew Masaki Sakurai. This is the cedar-top version of the well-known spruce counterpart - these instruments are currently being played by Oscar Ghiglia, Eduardo Fernandez and Shinichi Fukuda this concert season, and a string of top-players have played them in the past, including Sharon Isbin and Julian Bream, among others. The rosewood sides and back on this instrument are stunning and the Canadian red cedar top is perfectly quartersawn with plenty of silk. Playability is excellent. Tone is lovely with very, very good volume. We would recommend this guitar to anyone including a performing musician or recording artist. This instrument has some respectful playing wear on the soundboard and is in otherwise very good condition.

A hardshell case is included with this guitar.
