♬ Vintage Asturias ♬ Japanese Master Masaru Matano ♬ Luthier Refurbished ♬ Nice H/Case ♬

Sorry, this listing has ended.


Here we have a beautiful example of high grade Japanese craftsmanship.

A hand crafted early 'Asturias', made when Master Masaru Matano was head luthier there I believe.

These guitars are well regarded on the circuit and I know of many teachers who recommend them and also play them personally.

∞ Solid Cedar top board

∞ Rosewood body, bridge and fretboard

∞ Bone nut and saddle with 'good' action for a vintage classical

∞ Neck straight, frets dressed and polished

∞ Good hard case included

∞ Shipping included (UK+EU)

This piece has a fair amount of weathering to the nitro finish, which being a natural material does mellow and move with time, unlike modern plastic finishes.

In accordance with Reverbs' guidelines, this is being described as 'good' condition.

Really for the age though, she's very good.

The structure is also very good and there are no issues.

We have lightly refurbished and serviced this guitar to our usual high standard. 

A new set of D'Addario professional quality strings will be fitted prior to shipping.

Classic Japanese classical for your pursuits?
