DE €.3200 Kohno Pro-J spruce 2004, Dusseldorf

Post by es335 » Mon Sep 04, 2017 11:29 am

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!

- Type / luthier: Classical Guitar / Masaki Sakurai
- Year of construction: 2004
- Scale length (mm): 650
- nut width (mm): 52 mm
- top: spruce
- Tuners: Gotoh Premium 35AR510P
- Condition: Good with a few nail marks on the top.
- Price: €3,200
- Location (nearest city): Dusseldorf (Germany)
- Case: Ivory Hiscox Pro II

Thank you! :merci:

Here is an older mp3s soundclip of Tarrega's Prelude No. 1 which might give an impression of her tonal qualities with apologies for only my playing abilities which becomes even worse in front of a microphone! :wink: :D

All recordings are pure Zoom H4 without any post processing!

Thanks. :merci:

I’m not in a hurry nor under pressure to sell her but this Kohno deserves to be played more regularly than I can do. :chitarrista: :D
