Thank you for viewing this wonderful guitar from the legend Masaru Kohno.
This is a historical and rare early Kono Model No. 5 guitar crafted in 1964. At this point Masaru Kohno did not use the ‘h’ in Kohno. This vintage Kono guitar features all Solid Indian Rosewood and Spruce for that crisp, robust tone that professionals have come to expect from Masaru’s instruments.
Despite coming to the age of close to 50 year-old, this guitar is in excellent condition with normal play wear and marks. The super playable, smooth action on the ebony fretboard and 51mm nut makes this early Kohno extremely playable. A testament to the quality of Kohno guitars is how well this one has stood the test of time. This is a wonderful collectible Kono from the first years of Master Masaru Kohno’s.
The sound is very tradition of Kohno’s guitar. It is clear and well balance with rich dynamic range and yet is sweet and lyrical.
