Was trying to understand and search for some information or feedback of Sato's guitars from the 80 - 90s, as compared to his recent (more modern) ones in terms of sound/tone quality, workmanship, playability and the overall character. Simply because I have not had a chance to play any of his guitar and am considering to buy a second hand one, the guitar looks undoubtedly amazing and very promising.muirtan wrote: ↑Sun Mar 10, 2019 9:12 amWhat did you want to know? James Boyd owns one built in 1989. He mentions it here http://www.musicweb-international.com/c ... _Sleep.htm It's a beautiful sounding guitar I've not played it but heard it frequently.
Sato's guitars from the 80s are usually darker sounding than his new ones. That's nice if you ask me.
If you haven't played any of his guitars, it's quite difficult to know whether you will really like the one that you are considering to buy. I have heard recordings of guitars then went to play them in person, only to discover how radically different they sounded. I've also discovered through this forum how unreliable and subjective people's opinions can be when reviewing instruments. In the end you'll need to decide if the risk is worth it.
This guitar has been mine, the sound in the video is true, it was more in the traditional style, more than Satos newer models. I liked it but sold it when I got my Romanillos.quixilver wrote: ↑Sun Mar 10, 2019 11:28 amThanks Jon!
Found one video on YouTube, a Kazuo Sato 1987 beautifully played by Miguel Angel Lazaro and it sounds very pleasing. A video recording does not speak 100% accurate but one can tell that the guitar has more traditional sound as opposed to Sato's recent guitars.
