CANCELLED SALE. "Kono" Kohno Spruce 1962, Manila

Post by musguitar » Thu Aug 03, 2017 11:12 pm

Dear Moderator, sorry I have to cancel the sale of this guitar. Thanks.
Type / luthier: Classical, Masaru “Kono” Kohno
- Year of construction: 1962
- Scale length (mm): 650mm
- Nut width (mm): 50mm
- Top: Spruce
- Bracing (fan/lattice/other): Fan
- Back / Sides: Rosewood
- Fingerboard / (bridge): Ebony
- Sound: Deep bass and bright Treble
- Condition: No cracks. Very Good condition. Minimal scratches
- Price: $3500
- Viewing / trial possible: in Tagaytay City
- Location (nearest city): Manila

This 1962 crafted 3-years after Masaru Kohno's apprentice with Arcangel Fernandez and Ignacio Fleta in 1959. The headstock is very Fleta. Absolutely no cracks nor repairs, outstanding condition for a 1962-- I rate it 9 out of 10. It is very articulate and piano like with the complexity you'd expect from a spruce top. Basses are alive, rich and powerful sounding.

Overseas shipping available-- buyer pays. Will be packed professionally.

Thanks/Gracias.

Very nice and interesting guitar! Looks like Masaru Kono had undegone a phase of intensive bracing explorations in the late 50's and early 60's before returning to the classical fan bracing with his award winning guitar in 1967!? :)

Good luck with the sale! :D

Thanks for clearing! Would be interesting to know if your '62 Kono features actually the same bracing. Apologies for my curiosity! :oops:
