Sakurai and Yamaha are of different league, clearly sakurai is a logical choice.

Is Kazuo Sato considered as Japanese or German luthier? He's definitely a Japanese but has been residing in Germany for quite some time.
Kazuo Sato apprenticed with Kuniharu Nobe in Japan from 1965 to 1971 and later worked in David Rubio's and Paul Fischer's workshop in England before he established his own workshop in Germany in 1974. So he is rather a Japanese and/or English luthier than a German! :wink:
