I have a question: The seller I purchased this guitar also sold a 1982 Takamine N. 40. Does this mean that in 1982 the guitar sold for 400,000 yen?

1980 Kuniyoshi Matsui M-10
1975 Fernandes GC-30

No, 40.000 Yen, its a decent student guitar.

The Matsui guitar arrived today. Very pretty and very clean. Sound wise the trebles arr clear and strong but the basses are not as pronounced as my Nakade, Fernandes, or Cervantes/Asturias guitars.

One surprise was the 51mm nut width. I didn't anticipate how different it feels from the 52mm nut width and greater on my other guitars. I'm not sure my fat digits are going to get along together. I'll give it some time.

Overall, I think it was a very good purchase.

Other than the nut, the string spacing makes a big difference in feel. A new nut could usually be made with slightly wider string spacing if needed.
