About This Listing

American luthier & guitar importer, Juan Orozco invested in the creation of the Aranjuez guitar brand, even though these guitars were made only for the Japanese domestic market. Aranjuez guitars have always offered exceptional value for the money. The bodies of all models were made by Takamine workshop. Top Aranjuez models were being finished at the Kohno workshop and equipped with soundboards made by Masaru Kohno or his associates. From 1976, all Aranjuez guitars had Kohno stamps on their labels. Starting in 1977 Kohno stamp was no longer used on Aranjuez guitars, even though their production was still closely supervised by Masaru Kohno’s workshop.

In early 1980s bodies of Aranjuez guitar were made by Ryoji Matsuoka. After Matsuoka’s workshop was closed in September of 2014, bodies of Aranjuez guitars are again made by Takamine co. 

This guitar priced at ¥70,000 in the 1980s

Top: Solid cedar
Back and sides: Indian Rosewood
Neck: Mahogany
Fretboard: Ebony
Scale: 660mm
Nut: 51mm

The current action is set up 3.6mm and 3.0mm @12th fret and more room at the saddle and easy to adjust a lower action.

The guitar is still near mint condition. It is very rare to see this condition today. Beautiful sounds, deep basses, and clear trebles can match Kohno guitars.

Comes with a vintage Hardcase in very good condition.

Thank you
