Mr. Masaki Sakurai, nephew of the greatest luthier from Japan, Masaru Kohno, won the first prize in the 1988 Paris International Guitar Luthiers Competition. This model, "PC" or "Paris Competition" is the same design as the 1988 guitar which won the prize. A modest look at the instrument reveals a beautiful design and exact execution. Elements in the headstock and rosette are suggestive of Bouchet while the thick maple binding harkens back to the early Madrid school. This eclectic combination of styles produces what we believe to be a very tasteful, yet modern instrument. From a playability point of view, the double ebony reinforcing strips in the back of the neck allow for a very accurate setup, so the action is low and easy without buzzing. The tone is full and robust - bright yet warm. There is plenty of power here for any concert situation, including ensemble settings. Overall, a very robust and charming instrument.

Overall, this is a beautiful guitar, I played all Kohnos, including M50 and Maestro, this Masaki Sakurai is at least the same sound quality than the popular Kohnos. I think you can get no better guitar for this price.

This is the only guitar in the Kohno shop that has Maple bindings.....I was seriously considering between this model & my current one at time of purchase .

Masaki Sakurai seems to be a very popular guitar from Japan that has a lot of market demand. I have inquired this model from GSI a few times. Yours is so beautiful, mint and reasonably priced to consider for. However, does it has the CITES paper?

Japanease guitars are many times beyond excellent, I collect/trade sell them. I've owned a Sakurai Concert-J, that I sold here in Sweden, and I can confirm that the build quality is top notch as well as the playability and sound.

In this regard, I wondered why there are so few women in this forum activity if there are many women who play guitar .. Sorry if the question does not correspond to the site

Stunning. When I see workmanship like that I don't know whether I should just give up or whether I should make it a objective to aim for.
