Kazuo Hashimoto The following text is a direct quote from eBay: ” Kazuo Hashimoto Classical Guitar. Made in Japan in 1961, this is a lovely guitar! Hashimoto is one of a number of luthiers who made small numbers of classical guitars in the 50s and 60s under their own brand. It looks to be handmade, and I can’t imagine a small maker from this era mass producing from a factory line. REALLY hard to find info on this maker, and I have no idea where this model sits in Hashimoto’s repertoire. He certainly isn’t making guitars now, hasn’t for decades and I’d be surprised if he was making under this label even into the 70s.”

The label text, “This is a preparation under my supervision and guidance” is interesting.
