That's a lovely guitar. I'm a cedar fan myself, but spruce certainly does take on a beautiful hue as it ages, doesn't it?
Thank you! And yes
Yes, actually I've never seen a 35 year old in such wonderful condition Regarding the spruce, actually I don't know, it's quite possible. But it could very well ve european spruce too. Yamaha was famous for using EZO in the 70s/80s, Kohno/Sakurai I've not head of.
2500 dollars seems like a good deal. If he is your instructor, the wise thing to do would be to borrow it for a week or so, to see if the 660 scale works out. The action is good?midstream wrote: ↑Sun Jun 18, 2017 12:48 pmI apologize if I should not be addressing this group, but I am very close to purchasing a Khono 15 and need some advice. My instructor, has a 1976 Khono 15 in very good to excellent shape. It is a 660mm. He wants 2500 for it. Of course it sounds beautiful when he plays it. When I play it I am struck by the depth of the base and clarity of notes. I am concerned I may be making a mistake though getting a 660. My hands "spread" is 9.25 inches. I have not played it for and extended amount of time so I don't know if it may be too long a scale. If it is no problem, I don't mind spending the money, it seems a normal price, but if it doesn't work for me, I am concerned about resale with a 660 scale. Am I over thinking or should I just buy a wonderful guitar? Thanks, and happy father's day!
