Hello,
In case you needed copy-pastable text, the label reads 武藤久子サンノ為ニ之ヲ製作 昭和四十五年八月 池田司. It would appear that somebody called Ikeda Tsukasa ran a guitar school at some point. If you search for 池田司 ギター (Ikeda Tsukasa guitar), you will get a video of a Russian youth playing Recuerdos de la Alhambra on nicovideo. The description says he was a pupil at Ikeda Tsukasa's school in Tokyo. You can also find a mention of another of Ikeda Tsukasa's pupils giving a concert at a church in Yodobashi, Tokyo. His name is Ikeda Hirori (池田宏里) so I guess they are related.

I have no proof that this guy ever made guitars although it would make sense if he were the same person as the luthier who made your guitar.
