Seizo Shinano was a very skilled Master Luthier and founded Shinano Guitar Factory in the mid1960s. He has earned my deepest respect for his guitars. The (GS) Grand Shinano and SC series were very high-grade guitars. Models made by this factory in the 1960s were introductory (models 13 to 43) intermediate (53 to 63) and high end (73 through 93). Models like Shinano 73(all solid woods Spruce. Indian Rosewood), Shinano 83 (solid Spruce top, solid Brazilian Rosewood Back) and Shinano 93 (all solid woods with Spruce/BR) are greatly respected by Japanese players and considered as concert guitars. By the late1960s/the early 1970s the labelling system of Shinano guitars changed to SC and GS models.

This guitar was made in 1974.

The original price was 15,000 Japanese yen which at the time was 6-8 weeks worth of wage for the average Japanese person.

The guitar is in great condition as you can see from the photos. There are some expected minor signs of wear due to its age, but none will affect its wonderful tone.

I have restored it and enhanced the braces making it very resonant with deep clear basses and crystalline trebles. It has a sweet and pleasant tone.

Please feel free to ask for any additional information.

Thanks.
