It has been a long time since we wanted to list a guitar in our showroom in Paris from Hideo Sato – son of Kazuo Sato – . The Prestige model is so far the highest model produced by Hideo. Compared to his standard model, the woods are Master grade to achieve the best sound results. The guitar is a traditional braced guitar but which is not that much traditional (the bracing is a pure invention from the Sato Family) and to us the sound is much closer in volume to a double-top or a lattice guitar. The tone colors are thus very traditional but with huge dynamics. The sound is very close to the ones of Kazuo Sato (his father) but with a little bit more dynamic. It is a dream guitar!
M. Hideo and Kazuo Sato are some of the most famous luthiers making traditional guitars. Hideo is the son of Kazuo and shares the same workshop than his father. His guitars are very close to Kazuo’s guitars: same woods, same tools, same designs, and same overall tone colors. The family Sato lives in Germany since 1976. Before Kazuo, his father worked in England with the Luthier David Rubio. His guitars are famous for their exquisite craftmanship and for the high sounding quality.
If Sato family’s guitars had be compared to the other famous luthiers, his name would be mentioned with those of Daniel Friederich, Andreas Tacchi or Romanillos.
Hideo’s guitars compared to his father’s guitars are slightly louder and offer a crystal-clear sound.
We made for you a small interview of Hideo…
