Here is a brand new Masaki Sakurai from 2022. Very consistent with the ones we had before: very responsive and very balanced.
The luthier Masaki Sakurai is the nephew of Masura Kohno who passed away in 1998. Masaki Sakurai produces two guitar ranges: some classical guitars inspired by his uncle Masura Kohno under the brand Sakurai Kohno and his one product line under his own name Sakurai. This Sakurai Maestro guitar is his most advanced model and includes his latest innovations such as a raised fingerboard. The sound is loud and balanced with a great string separation as you could expect with a spruce top.
An amazing traditional guitar with a big voice and a natural-sounding beauty
We have been surprised by this classical guitar from Masaki Sakurai mostly by its loudness and its projection. The notes are full and creamy with the typical color of spruce. The trebles are soft and rather warm. The bass is clear and precise which offers a nice voice separation. Playability is excellent: a great example of a modern vision of a traditional guitar.
The perfection of the Japanese luthery.
This Maestro-RF from Masaki Sakurai has a Madagascar rosewood back and sides and a spruce top. Very balanced, she sings in a voice with equal parts vigorous, rich, and articulate. The Maestro-RF features an elevated fingerboard, which allows for easy access to upper frets and modifies the break angle of the strings over the saddle, increasing the amount of vertical force being applied to the Spruce top, which increases the responsiveness of the plates and dramatically enhances the sustain. Moreover, this shifts where the sound hole is projecting outward, which translates to more of the guitar’s sonorous voice in the player’s ear.
