We haven't had one of Yuichi Imai's classicals before, but are nonetheless impressed by the depth of tone and somber, warm timbre of the Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and Red Cedar top. This 1997 EJ-II has had plenty of time to open up, and it has done so beautifully, such that the instrument has a rich, well-balanced tone and excellent sustain. There are sweet overtones in the middle register that harmonize well with the clean, controlled trebles. This guitar is certainly a player's instrument, meaning that there are some scratches and finish checking from use, and the D tuner button is slightly bent, but functionally this classical is in top form--and you're hard-pressed to find this degree of craftsmanship and Brazilian Rosewood at such a low price. This guitar comes with the original hardshell case.

1997 Yuichi Imai EJ-II -  Classical Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"I think the low-end is articulate and clear, thanks to the sweet Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. The Red Cedar has opened up nicely, and the instrument's got lots of life left in it." - Paul Heumiller
