Kohno Custom Classical Guitar 2002 Cedar CSA


Just Arrived!  Custom built for the 1 owner, this is a beautiful example of Sakurai Kohno and his work with clear voices and powerful basses blending together for a more than pleasing classical experience.  He was a very clean and precise builder, as evidenced by my internal inspection of the guitar.  Very nice work.  The simplicity of the rosette and binding work is very attractive.  You can see clearly that this guitar is outside of his normal build, thus the custom ordering by the owner, from the woods to the machines to the binding work.  Very elegant.

The guitar is very clean, seemingly barely played.  I found miniscule nail marks, very few, in and around the rosette.  The CSA is exemplary.  I’ve just cleaned and polished the guitar, fretboard cleaning and oiling, neck treatment and a minor setup to raise the action at the nut a touch.  She was too low.  The guitar is sounding more full-bodied, rounder and warm, with a clear sing to her voice and excellent push from the basses and mids.  This is a seriously nice and beautiful guitar in every way.



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended

MP3 Audio  – kohno-custom-csa – here I play a little bit of Sam’s Lullaby and Valerie’s Air.  Very sweet guitar, clear voiced, crystalline affect in her trebles (the CSA does wonders), easily played.  Very nice custom build by Sakurai.

My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
