Re: kimbara

Hi, I am from Germany and travelled in 1977 to London to buy my first guitar. I got a Kimbara, Specially Made in Japan for FCN Model 150. I paid around 75 pound sterling. It is still a great guitar like some Martins

Re: kimbara

I bought a Kimbara 23CRD Chinese-built cutaway electro-acoustic about six years ago. It needed a little luthier work to bring it fully up to scratch, but as a result it has the sweetest action of any acoustic (well, any guitar, in fact) that I've ever played. So the transition to Chinese manufacture hasn't ruined the brand.

Light-bodied, it throws a lot of sound forwards, which might not suit everyone (I like giving it to friends to play just so I can here it to full effect). It has basic Artec passive EQ, but through a decent amp, the stock piezo pickup gives a great sound with plenty of "air" and full range.

IIRC I paid about £200 for it. I wouldn't ever sell it. Folks I know who have £600+ guitars rate it highly. Unless the OP's guitar's a total crock, I'd think twice about selling it!

Re: kimbara

i got my kimbara acoustic in 1979 it cost 45 pounds . and it was second hand .its black and has a pickgard coated in flowers and has a dove on it . i love it. although my gibson j 45 sounds top class . my kimbara is not too far behind in sound . does anyone know how much it is worth .

Re: kimbara

I bought a Kimbara black late 70s - pick guard with flowers and dove. ABSOLUTELY ASTOUNDING. Sounded like a Fender but a fraction of the price. Sold it along with all my other guitars - WRONG MOVE. I've now spent the past few years trying to find another. They are priceless if you have a good 70s model. Don't sell it for less than a couple of hundred (unless to me for what you paid for it!!!!!)
