This guitar, a good concert classical guitar, was labelled inside, on orange paper:
CLASSIC MODEL 811
Saxon (logo with a Viking helmet on the o)
EXCLUSIVE TO SELMER LONDON
I can find no record on the internet of a Selmer Saxon Model 811.
The body had a lot of fluff and dust inside it.
I cleaned out the fluff using two tablespoons of rice - shaking and tipping the guitar in different directions. This was effective and the fluff + rice was vacced out successfully.
The orange label had lifted at the edges and I could see another label behind it.
Curious to know what was hidden, I carefully removed the orange "Selmer" label and found a black and white label:
MOdel No 20
So, with Suzuki's reputation for quality, why was an importer sticking a Selmer label over the original label?
I identified the guitar positively by trawling suzuki classical guitars on Google.
It is a KISO #20 CLASSICAL GUITAR and the style of the internal label matched the one shown on the website.
I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on this little mystery.
