Masaru Kohno 30 Especial BRW Classical 1978

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 1982 making the woods used on this guitar legal and pre-Ban, an important factor these days. The Special model was known to be Kohno's top of the line model. The guitar has a wonderful balanced character, and features all the finesses of a the Absolute top of the class Concert instrument, including Old Growth and amazingly grained South American 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.

The guitar has been treated with great respect, small amount of playwear when you take it's age into account. Great overall condition, Playability and the voice of the guitar are astonishing. The spruce top has matured over the years and speaks with a impressive bold and big Spanish voice and must be considered very powerful. Its action and playability are second to none. A spruce topped guitar will grow dynamics over the years and only sound better and better the older it gets. The Special is stamped and signed by Masaru Kohno. The guitar comes with a very solid TKL case.
