Great to be here, and any more info I can get on Masaki Sakurai and his guitars, greatly appreciated,
Any suggestions / recommendations on a M Sakurai....
Might I find a used / older say 2010 M. Sakurai Professional J, say in $3500-$4000 range.
As I say above, for sure my next guitar is a Masaki Sakurai, $6500 is steep, but I get it, that's what that level costs.
I did play the "Concert R" model as well for $5,500, and to me it was not the same guitar at all.. It almost fest like another luthier build, not made by Sakurai, compared to the Pro J.
The volume, tone, response, was nowhere near the Pro J. Even the neck / fretboard, was nowhere near as precise / meticulous as the Pro J. That's just a testament to the Pro J craftmanship.
I am also selling another guitar on Reverb, a Seth Miller Hauser, you can look it up, having a hard time selling this guitar, and I am not sure why, I suppose an "unknown" builder. Has a nice full tone for $2300.
Perhaps I have to put on consignment at McCabes in Santa Monica, or something like that, suggestions much appreciated
Thanks in advance, macnylon
