Ryoji Matsuoka no.12 (1972) Handmade Classical Guitar

 

This wonderful guitar was made in 1972 in Japan by Ryoji Matsuoka.

Its original price was 12,000 Japanese Yen which is equivalent to 6 months wage for a person on a minimum wage back then, so it is a very good guitar.

It is also a very rare model, it is an in-between model number.  It is easier to find a model no.10 or no.20.  It is very to find model no.15 and rarer still this particular guitar, model no.12.

It is in amazing condition considering it's half a century old. It looks brand new.

The sound is loud and clear, with deep basses and bell-like trebles.  This guitar sounds better than many guitars currently sold for $2500-$3000.
