Kiso suzuki 'Grand Suzuki' GA-120 classical

Posted by Bob Bowen on Sat, 01/27/07 - 06:03:05.

I have just been given a kiso 'grand' suzuki classical guitar and was wondering the worth of it. It has the number 00806 printed on the sticker and model number is GA-120. does anyone know anything about its worth or how old it might be?

I have the excact same guitar, i've bought it in 1975 in Holland.
there is so little information and i would love to know more about it. What kind of wood it is made of etc.

I have a little information as I believe my wife's father worked in the Kiso-Suzuki factory. He has told me that the KSuzuki factory only made 1000 before the factory was shut down before the war. Apparently the guitars were originally sold for roughly $2. Many americans bought them during WWII. Due to the lack of information about them, I would think that not many remain, let alone in their original condition. I think that it would be worth at least $600 now. I suggest you keep it as I imagine that its value will continue to increase.
Good find. Lucky you.
