This beautiful guitar was made in 1973 by Zen-On Music Co.
A true Vintage Classical Acoustic, and very rare find.
In excellent shape overall, neck straight, action set medium low, and all hardware in great shape. Saddle has a good amount of life left, and intonation is spot on.
This guitar sounds wonderful definitely due to being made by top tier luthiers in Japan during its 70s golden era of guitar production.
Beautiful detail work and a rich aged wood make this a head turner when we bring it out.
Zen-On – Morales
Zen-On was (still is) a highly reputable music score and musical instruments distributor. ZenOn instruments were made by unnamed workshops led by great luthiers Toshihiko Tokugawa, Shoichi Yanagisawa, Hiro Tamura and Saburo Nogami.
This is great sounding and easy to play instrument, that can satisfy not only a beginner. but up to advanced depending on style.
Overall condition of this guitar can be described as very good to excellent for its age. few very minor scratches and rubbing marks on its top, back and neck. but hard to see and mostly clean overall.
Its tuning keys have lost a bit of their original luster, and its aged white caps are not super clear anymore.
No repairs, cracks or performance issues.
I vintage guitar at an incredible price. Just like they were built to be in the 70s. But ended up being much higher quality and stood the test of time as seen from this guitar.
