Product Description

Masaki Sakurai, nephew of the great Japanese luthier Masaru Kohno, was born in 1944. He studied at the electronics department of Sophia University and after graduating in 1967 he entered “Kohno Guitar Manufacturing”. In 1988 he won the first prize in the fourth Paris International Guitar Luthiers Competition. This number 5 model was built in 1976 and is one of Sakurai’s early works. The cedar top and the beautiful red-hued Indian Rosewood back and sides give the guitar a warm appealing appearance. The rosewood binding and back strip are embedded between two plain green mosaic stripes forming a nice contrast to the red mosaics in the rosette. The sound is warm but forceful with pearly trebles. The instrument has an excellent response due to many years of intensive playing. There are several little dings and signs of usage. An XS soft case is included.
