Das einstige Meistermodell M 30 von Masaru Kohno aus Japan aus dem Jahr 1980!

2 bearbeitete Risse auf der Decke, einer auf der Rückseite. Auf den Fotos gut zu erkennen!

Ansonsten einige Gebrauchsspuren im Finish!

Das Finish der Decke wurde fachmännisch bearbeitet und mit Schellack lackiert.

Strukturell aber in einem sehr guten Zustand!

Klanglich sehr stark und ausgeglichen!

Eine sehr interessante Gitarre für jemanden, der über kosmetische Dinge hinwegsehen kann und der ein klangstarkes Instrument sucht!

Antesten wird empfohlen!

 

The Model 30 was debuted in 1975. It was the new top model Kohno guitar (he generally offered three), and it featured a number of significant cosmetic enhancements over his models 10, 15 and 20. Otherwise, all the models shared the same structural design, and thus, shared the superb performance characteristics that distinguished Kohno guitars generally.

The new look of the 1975 Model 30 included a much more ornate headstock design, and a mosaic strip matching the rosette's binding was incorporated into the top's purfling.

The Model 30 remained the top model Kohno until c.1978 when the Model 50 was introduced. It featured further design changes to the headstock as well as to the bridge, and even more elaborate enhancements were made to the trim. Subsequently, the Model 30 became the number two guitar Kohno offered, and it saw two minor changes: the headstock shape was simplified, and it was now fitted with deluxe Gotoh tuning machines instead of the premium Landstorfers which, henceforth, became exclusive to the Model 50.

 

About Masaru Kohno (1926 - 1998):

Not only the most important luthier to emerge from Japan, Kohno is also one of the best worldwide. He was born in 1926 in Mito City, Japan, and in 1948 he graduated from the Tokyo College of Arts and Crafts with a degree in woodcraft. It was during this time that he became interested in guitar construction, and in 1960 he traveled to Spain to learn the craft.

Kohno apprenticed for six months at the workshop of Arcángel Fernández, and although neither could speak a word of the other's language, they managed to communicate. Kohno's apprenticeship consisted mostly of sitting in the back of the shop and quietly – but attentively – observing the master Fernández at work. Kohno's quiet learning paid off.

Upon his return to Tokyo he established his own workshop and quickly gained recognition among Japanese guitarists. His international debut came in 1967, when he 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. Since then, many players of world renown have used Kohno guitars; among them are Julian Bream, Oscar Gighlia, and Sharon Isbin, to name a few.
