2007 Sakurai Guitars P.C. - Concert, Nylon String Classical Guitar

The Sakurai Model P.C. is a reproduction of the guitar awarded the first prize at the International Guitar Making Competition in Paris, 1988. This guitar, like the winning instrument of 1988, is handmade by Masaki Sakurai, master luthier at Sakurai Guitars. This is one of the very finest Sakurai instruments featuring premium Brazilian Rosewood with a Master Grade Spruce top with a unique blend of fan and lattice style bracing. It is extremely open and warm sounding and has that amazing clarity that Masaki Sakurai mastered as head luthier at Kohno. The P.C. is adorned tastefully with intricate purflings, maple body bindings and maple inlays on the headstock and bridge. Masaki makes very few of this P.C. model and they are very special indeed.

Dream Guitars Player's Review:
"You can tell that this P.C. model is a labor of love for Masaki Sakurai, every detail is beautifully executed and only the finest materials are employed. I was extremely impressed with the open sound of this P.C. with the first passage I played. It's sweet and powerful at the same time. I'm a huge fan of the clarity and articulation that Sakurai guitars offer and this one has it in spades. This is a premiere Sakurai that offers something special for the players, hands, heart and soul." - Paul Heumiller

"This guitar is striking to look at and has a sweet tone with lots of character." - Al Petteway
