I own a Kasuga Acoustic 6 string guitar. I also can't find any real information about Kasuga International either, but I can tell you about my guitar.

I purchased my Kasuga guitar brand new in 1982. I believe it was made in the late 70's, and had been sitting around in this music dealer's house/shop for a few+ years. Model HC - 500. I believe it is a Martin D-50 copy. It is a very well crafted guitar. The tone is exeptional. Rosewood fretboard, solid spruce top, 2 piece back. Not sure if the back & sides are solid, but believe them to be Brazilian Rosewood. The only alterations I've made is, 1 - brass nut, 2 - brass saddle.

A friend of mine, who owns a Martin, prefers the tone of my guitar over his, and I agree with him. I use light gage strings.

Purchased in Prescott Onatrio Canada for $717.00 (CND $'s) (720 plus taxes).

I've tried many guitars since I purchased my Kasuga, and I still love the action, sound, and feel of my guitar best. My Kasuga is a beautiful guitar. Best money I ever spent.

Re: KASUGA GUITARS

I have a Kasuga guitar and have had it since the mid seventies looks as new as the day i bought for $500 its sunburst in color, looks like a blackwood timber, Model no`GU3610. wonderfull sound must be worth a bit by now.

Kasuga Guitar

I also have a Kasuga Acoustic Model GU3610 that I bought brand new here in Perth in 1979.
It is well crafted, also with a sunburst finish and is a great looking and sounding guitar.
It looks very similar to the Gibson Hummingbird model.

Re: KASUGA GUITARS

Does anyone have any info on a kasuga D-300 acoustic?

Re: KASUGA GUITARS

Correction: I purchased my Kasuga HC-500 in 1981 not 1982.

Daniel
