: : : I have owned a Matsuoka classical guitar since about 1980. Like yours there is very little information on the label.
: : : It says " RYOJO MATUSOKA - Luthier.
: : : There is nothing where it says Model No. but for the serial number mine says 50... nothing else.
: : : My pals at Coyles Music in Richboro told me that the sides and back are laminated rosewood. The top is obviously solid spruce.
: : : I paid about $110.00 dollars for it in 1980 from a pawn shop in West Philly including the hardshell case. I can't complain. It sounds great.
: : : It has a huge amount of projection.
: : : Does anyone have any idea how much it could be worth.
: : : Ron

It could be worth anything between $2 to $100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000. if you can't count the zeros, its a good price

There is a '78 Matsuoka M-50 at a reputable shop here in Victoria B.C. - the price is $750 Canadian. I don't know if it is a good deal or not...
