1975 Kohno No 10 Classical Guitar (consignment) SOLD

Comments At a young age, Masaru Kohno developed an interest in classical guitar and travelled from Japan to Europe to learn guitar construction. He may have spent some time in Barcelona studying under Fleta, but certainly spent six months in the Madrid, Spain shop of Arcangel Fernandez before returning to Tokyo where he established his own shop. He quickly gained the respect and patronage of many highly skilled guitarists, and his instruments are regarded as top quality.Masaru Kohno passed away in 1998.

Kohno instruments do not always hew strictly to traditional Spanish construction or design, and have many excellent tonal qualities.

This 1975 Kohno No.10 classical guitar is in good condition, plays very well and sounds like it’s been played – it’s open, articulate and has a rich, full voice.
