One myth in the Japanese guitars is that most of the best made guitars are only being sold locally. Those which are exported are of slightly inferior in sound quality.
This is unbelievably cheap for a PC and I'm so jealous I waited 1 year long for the guitar directly from Sakurai. I'm very confident to say that PC is a truly concert grade guitar, I do not bother much how people describe it as pianistic or inferior in some ways to other guitars. The requirement of plucking techniques and nails are way more important than to trust others comment about each guitar. And I do not agree that Sakurai guitars within Japan are more superior than the exported ones, probably due to the dealers abroad to request lower build to highest margin possible? The PC I got shipped directly from Sakurai is excellent to me. With good plucking and nails technique, this guitar can shine a milestone than a so so guitar. And it is perfectly accurate and consistent too in anyway. If Japanese is flawed, we have to really worry on others!Tom wrote: ↑Thu Jun 01, 2017 2:05 pmNeed some advice from experienced members here, a friend of mine bought this from a Japanese shop:
He paid YEN 400,000 which is about USD 3600, he is offering me USD 3200 for a quick deal because he is buying a new one from Sakurai directly.
Do you think this is a good bargain ? The guitar in good condition with no crack and repair.
Thank You for all the kind advice!
