I would like to hear any opinions/experiences on 1993 Hirade H8. Reportedly in mint condition, price 1500.00. Thanks

Too expensive.
These guitars are OK.
For that kind of money, maybe a tad more, you can get a Kohno or Nakade.
Look around more.

Decent guitar, neatly made and pretty good sound. One sold on reverb in 2016 for 760 USD. That's the sort of price I was thinking of.

If it was a Mass Hirade Master Arte Eight, the price would have been great though :)

1963 - José Ramirez (A.M, Antonio Martinez)
1964 - Masaru Kohno No.7 (Kono)
1989 - Antonio Marin Montero (Bouchet)
2017 - Tobias Braun (Santos Hernández, 1924)

Feel free to ask me anything about Japanese classical guitars.
