RYOJI MATSUOKA NO.20 HANDMADE CLASSICAL GUITAR 1983

 

This Matsuoka No.20 Classical Guitar was made in Japan, on Monday 22/08/1983.

The label shows it's model No.20 which is the same as model M20 (a lucky mistake for a collector?)

It was originally being sold for 20,000 yen when the yearly average income of a college graduate was about $100,000 yen which is about 8-10 weeks' wage.

One of my all-time favourites, the No.20 is loud, clear on the upper register, and deep in the bass range.

The braces have been modified to be more flexible and responsive to achieve a wider dynamic range and more sustain.

The N0.20 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 is why there are so few on the market.

Specs:

Top: Solid spruce

Sides and back: Mahogany

Neck: Mahogany

Fretboard: Rosewood

Scale length: 650mm

Nut width: 52mm

Action: 3.0mm on E1 and 3.5mm on E6 at the 12th fret

Please feel free to ask me for any further information.
