Are there good Japanese luthier made guitars that are 620mm-630mm in scale? If so which ones do you recommend?

There are 630 scale guitars by Matsuoka and Matano. Often have an "L" in the model number. They are excellent guitars. Guitars by the very top level Japanese luthiers with shorter scale length are a bit harder to come across, as they would only be special order, but still come up occasionally, on Buyee. There is an interesting 1958 Kono for sale on here which apparently has a 620 scale.
1962 Masaru Kono
1969 Rokutaro Nakade A9
1966 Sakazo Nakade model D
1977 Aria AG80
