Kiso-Suzuki 9651


My first guitar was a second-hand Kiso-Suzuki. Not much is know, other that it was a company from Japan that use to do Martin replicas until they were faced with lawsuits.

My research led me to believe that it is made of ash wood, manufactured in 1979 and has a 2 5/8 inch saddle (only 1 store on eBay has them). The neck has a wonderful feel, most probably solid rosewood and the guitar is very light (nothing else is solid). Surprisingly with a trust rod for calibration.

Did some modifications since it only had 1 strap pin which I replaced with a Schaller strap lock and fitted a second on the neck.

Guitar Playing


During my M.Sc. studies, I started to feel stress taking the better of me and needed a means to cope. That is when I started to play guitar. Nearly three years down the line and I have added a couple of guitars to my collection and can play a few songs. It is a real pleasure and great fun. I must thank Justin Sandercoe for his dedication and great work. I also recommend Yousician.

 

I am the proud owner of an Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus and a Faith Venus Blood Moon. Thanks to my wife, Sephora, for these wonderful gifts and her support.
