?..."T. Haruo guitars were manufactured at the Terada Musical Instrument factory in Nagoya, Japan between 1976 -- 1982. They were originally distributed by Arai Company, who briefly appointed Peninno Music of California as the USA distributor. The line, which was developed and conceived by Masao and Haruo Terada, was a very high quality guitar line, using the finest tone woods which were available at that time. Most of the Model 150 and Model 100, which were top of the line, actually were constructed with Makassar back and sides (which is in the ebony family), although enthusiasts over the years have repeatedly mistaken this to be Jacaranda. The remaining models T20 -- T80 were made using Indian rosewood as the back and side material, and sitka spruce tops. It is believed that Terada followed the specifications which were being used on C.F. Martin guitars, in relation to internal bracings, wood thickness, types of wood, application of lacquer, etc, along with their skilled craftsmanship and attention to detail. Almost all T. Haruo guitars in the market today are therefore 30-35 years old, and have withstood the test of time, holding up very well."

No idea...but one was sold on reverb a few years ago. Search for "1976 Terada T. Haruo T-100 Matin-style Rosewood" and you will find the listing.
