This Matsuoka M20 Classical Guitar was made on an autumn day in Japan, precisely on Thursday 03/11/1983.


For some reason, the M20 remains one of my all-time favorites. It's loud, clear and it sings in the upper register.


It was originally being sold for 20,000 yen when the yearly average income of a college graduate was about $110,000 yen which is about 10 weeks' wage.


I've put a lot of work into this guitar to make it sound wonderful. I will make a video and upload it on youtube for you to see and hear. If I forget, please message to make the video for you.


The M20 was part of the Concert series and was handmade by Ryoji Matsuoka and his family in Nagoya. It was made for the domestic market and that why there are so few on the market.



Specification:


Top: Solid Spruce


Back & Sides: Rosewood “double-plates”


“Laminated” is not a suitable word for Japanese made guitars. These "laminates" were made from 2 layers of solid wood glued together with natural resins. The Japanese perfected this technique so well these double-plates were as good as solid woods and far more resistant to cracking.


Neck: Mahogany


Fingerboard: Ebony


Nut width: 52mm


Scale: 650 mm


The action is set to 3.50 mm under E6 and 3.00 mm under E1, with some extra room left on the saddle.


Shipping is about $60 Australia wide. For international buyers please contact me for shipping costs.


Thank you.
