This is an early Kohno with all the original parts except for new frets by luthier Ross Gutmeier. Ross told me this Kohno is a good one and it is the best Kohno he ever played.
Very recently the guitar was thoroughly gone over by Ross. I have a copy of the work order.
A bit of history: this was purchased by the original owner in 1967 and played for less than a year, according to the owner's son. The son thinks his father played it for a few months and gave up learning to play a classical guitar. I am the second owner and have done nothing to the guitar except having Ross check and work on it.
Please let me know if you would like more pics.
