Description

Such a lovely voice! This 2017 Sakurai PC (Paris Competion) model is already amazing and it's practically brand new. CSA Rosewood and Spruce with Sakurai's cashew finish make for a resonant package that responds beautifully to a range of attacks and styles. Everything about this guitar speaks of smooth, efficient operation, from the tuners and the neck feel to the excellent string-to-string and note-to-note balance.


The bass is characterized by a clean, transparent response and is mated to an equally clear upper register. With enough sustain to make you look around for the hidden speaker that's playing on repeat, and a glass-smooth setup, this 2017 Sakurai PC is a delight to play each time you pick it up. This model is based on Sakurai's winning entry to the 1988 Paris International Guitar Luthiers Competition, and hasn't changed much since then--evidence that Sakurai has perfected his craft in spectacular fashion.

Great clarity across the registers, and the neck carve feels instantly familiar in my hands. This is as close as you're going to get to a new Sakurai PC without it arriving shrink wrapped in plastic!
