I did a search for the "sakurai Pc". I found two prices. $7,500 and $9,500. I have no experience of that model but just from a price and reputation perspective you already have a top class instrument. It no doubt has a specific Kohno style sound that may or may not be everybody's taste but it is a taste issue not a "better", "best" issue. When you are willing to spend above that range you have an almost unlimited choice. But unfortunately its like saying I want to spend between $125k and $250k on a car. You could buy a Bentley or a Ferrari: which is better? I have never sat in either so I have no idea (but I would buy a house somewhere instead anyway). Similarly with top end guitars: it is a very personal choice and requires the development of one's own taste.Tapin wrote:... it seems P.B Royal is not so popular, maybe the price range is too expensive. Actually I just want an upgrade from my sakurai Pc model.
If you have a clear vision of what type of music you want to play, and where (e.g. home, concert hall), then that might give some people here a hint as to what type of instrument to recommend as it maybe that certain music will work better on one type or another. Some of the people who have chimed in above have lots of experience with some of the best guitars in the world and understand the differences.
It would also be worthwhile to play some good but cheaper instruments to understand the differences. Look at a couple of instruments in the price range $1500 to $3500 and see what the differences are to your own.
