Tuning Machine:FUSTERO
String height:1string 2.6mm/6string 3.8mm

Born in 1952, he went to Spain in 1979 to study guitar making under the master craftsman Antonio Marin in Granada, and during that two-year period he worked with Marin almost like a member of the family. After returning to Japan, he presented his work as a gem deeply imbued with Spanish taste, and it came to be regarded as the first authentic Spanish guitar in Japan.
In 1988, he won the Grand Prix at the International Guitar Making Competition in Kutnájora, Czechoslovakia, and his abilities have been highly acclaimed internationally.
His style, with its unrivaled beauty and elegance of appearance, profound, dense, and lustrous tone, and sufficient transparency, has gained more and more maturity in recent years, and his reputation as a coveted instrument for enthusiasts is now firmly established.
He was a member of the jury for the 1st Amateur Guitar Making Contest, participated in the 7th Collier Guitar Seminar in Spain, and was a member of the jury for the Guitar Builder in Yasato. His articles on guitar making published in the magazine 'Gendai Guitar' received a great response and were published in book form. In 2020, his interview and works were featured in Orfeo Magazine No. 15, published by Camino Verde, a French publisher.

A new Bouchet model, No. 80, made by Alberto Nejime Ono (Kojiro Nejime) is now in stock. While adhering to the original, Mr. Nejime's originality and ingenuity have been applied to achieve a unique sound.
One of Nejime's recent characteristics is a very dense monophonic sound, which can be clearly heard in this Indian rosewood version. The hard output has a stoic feel, yet each note has a rich expression from the weakest to the strongest. The finish is a beautiful shellac, which harmonizes well with the simple look of the brown-toned rosette. Please try this valuable new product from Japan's top brand.
