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 top model of their output and features their best materials, inlay work and craftsmanship in the Sakurai-Kohno lineup. Sakurai-Kohno guitars are currently being played by Oscar Ghiglia, Eduardo Fernandez and Shinichi Fukuda at present, 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 spruce top is perfectly quarter sawn with plenty of silk. Upgraded tuners by Klaus Scheller in Germany. 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.
