Matsuoka MG100 1975. My acquaintance with Japanese guitars began with Matsuoka. And of course I dreamed of getting to myself the top model by master. I was thinking about the 1973 No.80. But once there was a lot with an amazing 1975 mg-100, and at an adequate price. I could not pass by. The guitar was in excellent condition, no cracks or chips. Only a couple of scratches. Armed with a credit card and won the lot, which is still happy. An interesting carved ornament on the head of the neck, the body is not made of brazilian, but of a solid rare latin american rosewood, the top is made of solid spruce with a beautifully iridescent structure. And, interestingly, this guitar exudes a very pleasant smell. Smells like expensive perfume. There is no information about this model in the network, but there are several photos, including labels. I found 17373, 17468, 17470.
My number is 17471. So I think it was some limited edition, released in 75 year. The sound of the guitar is well worth the cost. Her sound is soft, velvety, bass. You can play very gently, but if necessary, it allow a bright dynamic. Unlike the Nakade 1200, this is a completely different sound, less classical. Great to have such different instruments.
