1977 Kohno 30 Concert Classical, Excellent condition, this is a top of the range' classical guitar I believe the top to be fine grain solid Cedar and the sides to be Brazilian Rosewood.
This is the top of the range Model and it is signed by Kohno himself.

Beautiful example of a Model 30. I take loving care of it as it is more than just a guitar to me;it has a soul. 
It sings,laughs . It has had 1 small line surface crack repaired. Pls see the photo , Kohno's of that vintage came with NEW Goteh tuners. I would like to post some pictures.

Except for a well repaired surface small crack, pls see the photo, it was repaired in excellent condition. And no harm to the inside wood.

Tuner had replaced with NEW Goto half year before.

Comes with a straight neck, easy action and tone and volume to be expected from a guitar constructed from the finest rarest materials by an outstanding luthier. Beautiful sound, strong projection, quick response and sustained, combined to great playability and balance. Scale 660mm, Neck width 52mm.

To my eye the top looks like spruce. Am not sure I've ever seen a Kohno with a cedar top that I can remember, at least one of this vintage. Too bad you are so far away, looks like a nice one!

At that price, this guitar is likely a steal! Another gem that I hate to have to pass on right now! hahaha.. Good luck with the sale. This guitar will likely go quick.
