Alberto Nejime Ohno

Tuning Machine:SLOANE
String height:1string 2.8mm/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.

We are pleased to announce the arrival of an original model 2017 made by Alberto Nejime Ono (Kojiro Nejime). This is an artistic guitar with a dense sound that can be said to be characteristic of his recent work, and while based on traditional production methods, it is full of his creativity and individuality. The sound board is made of cedar wood, which gives this guitar a wonderful glossy and rounded sound. The acoustic design is excellent, with moderate depth, dynamism and quickness from weak to strong notes, and delicate and subtle changes in tone quality. The overall finish is the original shellac. There are some minor scratches around the sound hole, but not enough to spoil the appearance. There are a few scratch marks on the back of the neck from fingernails.
