Born in Nagoya, Japan in 1939, Kodama Kanoh started learning guitar making at the workshop of his father, Mokumei Kanoh, in 1958 at the age of 19. He became independent in 1966 and started making his own brand of guitars. Since then, he has been actively producing high quality instruments and is one of the oldest and most experienced guitar makers in Japan. In addition to guitars, he also makes mandolins and lutes, for which he is highly regarded. His classical guitars are designed to sound Spanish, but at the same time are modest and stoic in tone, rich in sound and elegant. He is a pioneer in the field of high quality short scale guitars, and his lineup is particularly extensive with models in the 610-640mm range.

This is a new model made by Kodama Kanoh, No.100, 610mm short scale, 2022, using cedar for the sound board and rosewood from Central and South America for the back and sides. He is regarded as a pioneer in the short scale genre in Japan. This model does not feel any disadvantages of short string length and has high quality in sound, volume, and expressiveness. Even the smallest of the short-scale guitars, the 610mm Kanoh, is powerful and loud enough to be used as a concert guitar, and its potential has been successfully drawn out to create a guitar of high quality.
This is a new product for 2022, but the finish of the paint does not meet the brand's standards in some areas (the quality itself is not affected at all), and it was specially shipped as an official outlet product from the workshop. The price is 1,100,000 yen including tax, usually 5% off, but this is offered at a special outlet price of 770,000 yen including tax (30% off). This is limited to this piece only. Please take this opportunity to try it out.
