Kazuo Sato is an internationally renowned luthier who apprenticed with Kuniharu Nobe in Japan from 1965 to 1971. After that period, he moved to David Rubio’s workshop in England, where he worked along with another famous luthier: Paul Fischer. In 1974 he established his own workshop in Germany. He is still based in Germany and now also works together with his son Hideo Sato. His son Hideo, who, like his brother, learned classical guitar with Prof. Ansgar Krause, followed the activities in the workshop with great interest from an early age. In 2011, despite a promising career in the software industry in Japan, he decided to dedicate himself entirely to guitar making. After several years of apprenticeship, he builds classical concert guitars together with his father. Hideo utilizes his father’s rich wealth of experience as a foundation for realizing his own ideas. Even his first instruments were played and appreciated by well-known guitarists and professors.

The “Prestige” model by Hideo Sato stands as a pinnacle of craftsmanship, nestling at the very top of his guitar lineup. Crafted with highly figured Madagascar rosewood for the back and sides, this guitar is not just a musical instrument but a piece of art, distinguished by its remarkable quality and stunning appearance. One of the most striking features of the “Prestige” model is its exceptional projection, making it an ideal choice for concert performances. The rich tonal colors, warm timbre, and exceptional sensitivity of this guitar offer musicians a spectrum of expressive possibilities, allowing for a deeply personal and nuanced musical exploration. Built in 2023, the guitar remains in excellent condition, showing only superficial signs of play, a testament to its durable craftsmanship and the care it has received.

Despite its near-pristine condition, the “Prestige” model has one repaired hairline crack on the Madagascar rosewood back—a minor flaw that is not uncommon for this type of wood and is considered purely cosmetic. The repair, expertly carried out at the Sato workshop, underscores the meticulous attention to detail and commitment to excellence synonymous with Hideo Sato’s work. This minor imperfection does not affect the guitar’s sound quality, ensuring that the instrument’s tonal integrity remains uncompromised. Owning a Hideo Sato “Prestige” model built in the latest year represents a unique opportunity for enthusiasts and professionals alike to acquire a top-of-the-line instrument without the usual waiting time and at a sensible price. This guitar embodies the perfect blend of aesthetic beauty, exceptional playability, and sonic excellence, making it a coveted piece for any serious guitarist’s collection.
