Masaru Kohno Professional CSAR Spruce 1983

This is a rare opportunity, master-luthier Masaru Kohno only made a handful 'especial' level guitars each year, and finding one in such fine condition is rarely found on the open market. Kohno guitars built by Masaru Kohno are considered world class instruments of the very highest standard. Masaru Kohno (1926-1998) traveled in 1960 from Japan to Spain to learn the craft of Guitarmaking where he apprenticed at the workshop of Arcangel Fernandez. After his apprenticeship he established a workshop in Japan and gained international recognition when he was awarded the Gold Medal at the Elizabeth's Concourse International Guitar Building Competition. The judge's panel was of international prestige, and among others, Robert Bouchet and Ignacio Fleta were part of it.

Many players have played Kohno guitars since then, among them are Julian Bream, Oscar Gighlia, and Sharon Isbin. This wonderful Kohno Special was made in 1983 . This top-of-the-line model features all the finesses of a worldclass Concert instrument, and features include Old Growth and amazingly grained CSAR rosewood back and sides with a breathtaking grain, a fine mastergrade Hokkaido spruce top, ebony fingerboard, rosewood bridge, quality tuners, intricate bindings/purfling and rosette, 52mm width at the nut, 650mm scale. Condition is excellent, very clean for it's age with some expected signs of use.
