I know what you mean. For sure this is a guitar with a refined tone which reminds me of my Giovanni Tacchi Friederich copy. The basses are full and rich, the balance is perfect and the trebles are singing loud and clear. I would have kept her for myself if had not grasped the opportunity to purchase Giovanni's outstanding Friederich replica. One good cedar guitar is enough, as I am a spruce player. :D

Thanks Jack, I am curious, how Jon will judge the guitar.

It's a wonderful guitar. I played it for a few days now. Much louder and bolder than expected, but never "boomy". Not lightly built. Very sweet, yet clear tone, with loooooong sustain. I especially like the thick sounding trebles, all the way up the fretboard. It's also very easy to play. It's one of my favorite guitars for sure.

I would say it's quite the opposite to my Voigt Torres :)

Feel free to ask me anything about Japanese classical guitars.
