2020 Masaki Sakurai Model R Cedar EIRW 640mm


There’s much to say about greatness.  She is superb in all regards.

I do know this…the guitar is gorgeous.  The woods used are spectacular.  The EIRW is beautiful, giving the guitar such warmth and bell like clarity.

She has an incredibly clear vibrant sound with superbly easy play.   I had to ask the seller, why are you selling this guitar?  I like Spruce was the answer.  OK?  LOL and moving on.   This is a great guitar.

A Certificate of Authenticity accompanies this guitar, signed by Masaki, identifying the guitar as Concert-R Model with Serial Number K0901A



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar.  I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything.  Thanks. Rich
