Description

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. 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 German spruce 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.

*NOTE: Although this is the actual guitar shown in the photos, the tuning machines have since been upgraded with Graf machine heads, and MOP fret markers have been added at frets 5, 7 and 9. The guitar is in mint, new-condition.
