This is a very special guitar, made in the same year as Kohno was awarded the Gold Medal at the Elizabeth’s Concourse International Guitar Building Competition in Belgium. On the judge’s panel were, among others, Ignacio Fleta, Robert Bouchet, Joaquín Rodrigo, and Alirio Díaz. The legendary Daniel Friedrich came second in the same competition.
The guitar has a beautiful sound with great balance. It has obviously been played a lot; there are lots of playing wear on the polish, but no cracks or other problems.
Back and sides: Indian Rosewood
Condition: much wear on the polish but no cracks.
Price: 2800 Euro
