Description

This incredible Matsuda M1 guitar features a custom split headstock and Low D extension "capo" that drops the low E string down a full step. This wonderful instrument also showcases Michi's impressive artistic talents. From the sweeping rosette, to the side multi-dimensional side soundport to the ergonomic "sloped" neck heel, this is as fine a guitar as we've ever seen. The old growth Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and perfect Italian Spruce top make for a sublime, full tone with rich bass and musical treble that are clear and present. An incredible guitar that can change tunings with the flick of a wrist.

I saw this guitar when Michi debuted it and we are delighted to have a chance to offer it to our clients. Everything about this Matsuda guitar is an expression of art and music.
 
The tone on this work of art is unsurpassed. The low D extension is pretty cool, if you play a lot in Drop D tuning, although you have to remember the fingering doesn't change from standard tuning when you use this feature.
