Ads are moved to the archives as soon as the guitar is sold. Ads that have had no response for more than one year will be moved to the archives. A message can be edited by its author for the first 21 days after posting, after which it is necessary to ask a moderator to make any changes.

Members who buy an instrument unseen do so at their own risk and should exercise due caution. For added security, it is advisable to use a licensed online escrow service (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escrow).

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) means that some materials used in guitars, although formerly allowed, may now require permits or be illegal to sell across national borders, or even locally in some places. It is the responsibility of the buyer and seller to ensure that the sale complies with all applicable laws in their respective countries.

I'm offering my beloved Sakurai-Kohno Pro-J from 2004 with spruce top and nicely figured Jacaranda back and sides, because it is obvious, that she will not get the attention she deserves any more. Condition is good with just a few nail marks on the top which are difficult to photograph but otherwise no damages nor cracks etc.!

This Kohno Pro-J guitar features already the Maestro lattice bracing! She has a wide tonal spectrum, impressing deep and well contoured basses, a strong top e voice, fast response, good separation and particular good projection. She has a bright, open voice in the sense that her sound seems to come from a point in front of the sound hole rather than from inside the body, which I didn't experienced with any other guitars. Playability is good as expected with sufficient reserve at the bridge for further optimization.

This beautiful guitar is mainly for sale in the EU due to Cites issues!

Thanks Jon, for your kind words, this definitely will be! :merci:

Though my experience is limited, my ears and feedback from more competent professional players say that this guitar is somehow special. :wink:

Thank you! :merci:
Here are some older mp3s soundclips of David Kellner‘s Phantasia in A major, Tarrega's Prelude No. 1 and Sor's Vals Op. 32 No. 2 which might give an impression of her tonal qualities, only limited by my playing abilities of course! Apologies for that! :wink: :D

All recordings are pure Zoom H4 without any post processing!
