masaru matano guitar

Posted by barb on Thu, 05/05/05 - 19:52:48.

I have a class 400 masaru matano classical guitar (1977 manufacture date) and have found very little information on this guitar or luthier. I bought it for a fabulous price from a friend and it appears to have had little, if any, use. I am very fond of thi quitar and would like to know more about it. I'd appreciate any information or sources I could go to for information.

M. Matano went on to found Asturias & Kodaira Guitars in Kyoshi / Kobe Japan. Matano san has either retired or passed on. The workshop is now run by Watari Tsuji. Check out Casa Bennelly for prices of current Asturias guitars.
I can give you a better idea of the guitars value if you can describe the guitar or send me a pic.
Best regards
Richard
