SE €.1200 Masaki Sakurai No.10 spruce 1979, Malmö - Sweden - Sold

Post by rinneby » Wed Dec 06, 2017 10:35 am

- Luthier: Masaki Sakurai
- Year of construction: 1979
- Scale length: 650 mm
- Nut width: 52 mm
- Action 4/3 mm
- Top: Solid Spruce
- Back / Sides: Solid Indian Rosewood
- Fingerboard: Ebony
- Condition: Good
- Price: 1200 Euro, including case + shipping (EU only)
- Location: Sweden / Malmö

An excellent guitar hand made by Masaki Sakurai in 1979, no cracks or repairs and easy playability. A few scratches on the back and a ding behind the neck. Everything is original, including the tuners.

Mr. Masaki Sakurai is the nephew of the greatest luthier from Japan, Masaru Kohno, with whom he worked with, and learned the craft of guitar making. Although clearly influenced by his uncle, Sakurai also infuses his own personality into his guitars. The double ebony reinforcing strips in the back of the neck allow for a very accurate setup.

Less than US$1500? Seriously good buy. Elsewhere on this forum right now (in another thread) somebody is pontificating what guitar is best for $2k. I know the answer, import this!
