Born in 1956. He has a workshop in Chino City, Nagano Prefecture. He learned guitar making from his father, Yukio Chai, a guitar maker. Maintains popularity for its careful Spanish-style construction, deep and soft sound, and playability that fits the physicality of the Japanese. Another guitar maker, Yukinobu Chai, is his uncle.

Yukihide Chai No.80 made in 1998 is now in stock. This is the top-of-the-line model of this brand. The wood is selected from good quality woods, and the finish is impeccable from the detailed design to the delicate shellac finish. The sound is soft and pleasant when you play it. It has sufficient volume and dynamism, and the fact that the maker has created a calm and unique sound is an indication of his ability.
Scratches and dings can be seen around the soundhole and bridge, and on the sides of the fingerboard. There are no cracks or other major repairs.
