Thanks for that. I haven't listened to all the guitars, but I sure did like the Locatto.
Adriano Del Sal plays beautifully.

I can highly recommend visiting Lorenzo Frignani (Vicolo Forni, 7, 41121 Modena MO).

Feel free to ask me anything about Japanese classical guitars.

I liked the Zanchi (love its look as well!) , Coriani, Pozzi, Perella, Migliorini, Lodi and Maguelo.
Maybe the Migliorini best.
On the whole I 'd sa ythey all sounded pretty similar. Like, ummm, classical guitars :)
There was not one single guitar that I didn't like soundwise.
But I've never been too much a sound fetishist anyway.

What I've noticed is that only 10 guitars had a 20th fret. (yes, I have counted them)

Hello all, thanks so much for your replies. I made the trip already. But failed to have time to visit any luthier. I agree that to personally visit a luthier is the best thing to do before placing an order. And to visit the luthier is not just see his guitar, this is also for sure.
I’m sorry you missed a wonderful opportunity. I believe you would have been welcomed graciously and would have some special memories and perhaps a new friend!
