Masaki Sakurai PC (CSA rosewood) for USD 3,200 is it a good deal?

Post by Tom » Thu Jun 01, 2017 2:05 pm

Need some advice from experienced members here, a friend of mine bought this from a Japanese shop:

http://www.lluck.jp/list/guitar/used/u030/PC64.html

He paid YEN 400,000 which is about USD 3600, he is offering me USD 3200 for a quick deal because he is buying a new one from Sakurai directly.

Do you think this is a good bargain ? The guitar in good condition with no crack and repair.

Thank You for all the kind advice!

Do it, it's extremely cheap. But don't expect it to sound like the Kono's from the 60s ;)

One myth in the Japanese guitars is that most of the best made guitars are only being sold locally. Those which are exported are of slightly inferior in sound quality.

I was told this particulaly one was owned by a professional guitar who bought it locally in Japan.
