You can't go wrong with a Sakurai if you like the sound, simple as that. The build quality will last a life time and more. What model is it?

Just go & play, feel the instrument & hear/see for yourself......then you know for sure
I'm glad to see the general consensus is that they are well regarded.

I've owned a concert-j, it was excellent. The PA is at least one step above, to my understanding.

It sounds like I'm going with the PC. I had Tavi Jinariu try it out and the contreras another Perez and hauser Córdoba sounded grewt

Good for you my friend, I was seriously considering/ choosing between the PC & my current model Maestro RF at the time when i was making my purchase.

After my recent guitar tour trip in Japan where i tried & played numerous guitars, I've decided amongst my other purchases; to either commission or purchase off the shelf another Sakurai Kohno Maestro model ( this is the line that is Masaru Kohno but is now made by Mr Sakurai)
Masaki Sakurai MA-RF
Antonio Picado Concierto DT

I just bought a 1976 no.5 a month ago in very good price. The bracing is similar as below which sound really a bit different from tranditional fan brace guitar. Try it you may like it.

But I am not sure how the modern brace in today M.Sakurai now. So this post may be useless to you.

Even after Masaru Kohno studied in Spain in the late 50s to early 60s, he used parralel bracing similar to the pic as late as early '62. Kohno fan bracing only appeared in late '62. From my early '62 Kono the tone is on the dark side, akin to a cedar top.
