We are pleased to announce the arrival of Hideyuki Ezaki's No.80 (2023). The sound board is made of German pine, the back and sides of Madagascar rosewood, and the entire body is carefully finished in shellac. The internal construction of the instrument is clearly influenced by Hernández y Aguado, whom Ezaki studied under directly. Therefore, this piece is characterized by a brighter tone. The sound board has a few scratches, but the rest of the instrument is in very good condition.
